When it comes time to get your students ready on their first day of school, you’ll want to know that you’ve done everything possible to make their day great! Get the school supplies, new clothes, shoes, and a healthy lunch ready to go, but make sure that you’ve also done a check on their smile! We’ve put together a list of three ways you can ace this school preparation exam!
1) Prioritize Dental Care in the Routine
We know you have a routine in your house, and that’s great for your student(s), but what role does dental care play? Is it squeezed between other things, or is it prioritized? Help your students see the importance of oral hygiene, and they will be more likely to prioritize it when they are on their own!
2) Consider Special Treatments
For students who struggle with cavities and decay, we offer special treatments that can protect their teeth and help them avoid cavities. Dental sealants and fluoride treatments are both fantastic tools for students who are more prone to cavities.
3) An Orthodontic Check
Your student should have an orthodontic check around the age of seven years old. The sooner we see your student the better because we can often prevent the need for braces by using smaller, more simple appliances to help adult teeth come in correctly.
Preparing for school has a lot of steps, and we’re sure you are taking each one in stride. Add these things to your list to ensure a great school year, and an even better future life for your student.
