The Fourth of July has come and gone. The MLB All-Star game has been played. And the first day of school is looming on the horizon for students nationwide.
If your child is entering kindergarten or first grade, freshmen year of high school, or the first year at university, the institution he or she is attending probably requires a dental exam prior to the first day of classes.
Mandatory Dental Exams
While for most people August is the month for summer vacations, for dental offices it is one of the busiest months of the years as parents scramble to get appointments for their children. Every year, parents wait until the last minute to make their child’s pre-admittance dental appointments. And every year, dental offices around the country are overloaded with appointments as they try to accommodate as many patients as possible.
Mandatory dental exams are exactly what they say: Non-optional. If your child has not yet had their dental exam there is a very strong possibility they will be kept out of classes until they do.
Don’t Wait, Schedule Now
The closer it gets to the first day of school, the more pressure there is on parents and dentists alike to meet this requirement for incoming students. This year, don’t let yourself get caught in the last minute panic. Making an appointment now allows you to beat the rush and get your child’s examination scheduled well before the deadline.
Why is it that summer always goes by so fast? Unlike winter which seems to last forever, summer vacation streaks by and is over before you know it. If you have children going into one of the grades that require mandatory dental examinations prior to admission, make your appointments now and escape the last-minute anxiety.
