Summer is one of the most popular times for visiting the dentist’s office. Kids need to get their teeth checked out before heading to elementary school, high school, or college. Grownups often have more time for dental appointments during the more relaxed summer months.
Everybody seems to have more leisure time in summer — except dentists, of course. That’s why it’s important to make your summer dental appointments as early as possible so you won’t have to wait weeks or even months before you can see your dentist.
Mandatory Dental Appointments
The busiest time for tax accountants is the weeks leading up to April 15. The busiest time for retailers is the weeks leading up to Christmas. And the busiest time for dentists is the weeks leading up to the beginning of the new school year.
Many school districts, colleges, and universities require new incoming students to have a complete physical examination, including a dental exam, prior to starting the new school year. This makes perfect sense because students need to identify any potential health issues before starting school.
Mandatory physical and dental examinations are an effective way of spotting, identifying, and correcting physical and dental problems before they become something much worse.
Don’t Get Left Behind
Making a dental appointment for your child with McCosh Family Dentistry before they school begins is the best way to ensure you meet this requirement. If you wait too long, you run the risk of your child not being able to start school on time. Or you may have to visit a dentist you have never seen before.
In summer, the dentist’s schedule always fills up fast. And the closer it gets to school starting, the busier it gets.
Don’t risk your child getting left out. Make a dental appointment for your child today so you can ensure they start school with the rest of their class.
