Studies have shown that children in the U.S. miss about 51 million school hours each year due to dental disease. That’s why it’s so important to bring your kids in for a dental checkup before the school year starts, and it’s also why many school districts require dental checkups for students.
Families often become immersed in summertime activities and vacations and forget to schedule their dental appointments until the last minute. Scheduling an appointment early helps you beat the late-summer rush and also helps prevent any small problems from developing into larger ones.
A good way to keep your children from becoming grouchy during their dental visit is to make sure they’re not hungry when they arrive. Even a little snack, followed by a pre-visit tooth brushing, can help keep kids in a good mood. Also, don’t schedule appointments during your kids’ regular nap times, since this can make them even more grumpy about their visit.
