December traditionally is one of the busiest months for most dentist’s offices. The reason? College students.
When students go away to college in the Fall, their thoughts are usually on studying, having fun, and enjoying their undergraduate experience. They typically don’t spend a lot of time thinking about their oral health. But their parents do.
So when students return home for their holiday break, it’s the ideal time for parents to make dental appointments for their college-aged children. During the brief weeks they are home, they can get in to see their dentist, get their annual checkup and have any work done that they need, such as teeth cleaning or filling cavities.
Every year, millions of students go away to college in the Fall and return home for their holiday break in the early winter. That means millions of parents are trying to get appointments for their college-aged children during this brief period.
Add into that all the other patients who also want to get in to see their dentists before their annual insurance benefits run out for the year and it’s easy to see why December is such a busy month for dental offices. So if you want to make sure your college-aged son or daughter gets in to see the dental professionals at McCosh Family Dentistry, the time to act is right now.
Operators Standing By
Currently, we still have some appointments available in December, but the schedule is filling up fast. In just a few weeks or even days, there may be no more spots left.
The last thing we want is for your college student to return to school without having seen their dentists, especially if they need care. So make sure you get the appointment you need at a time that is convenient for you by calling right now.
