Getting Kids Ready for School

Yes, June is a little too early to be thinking about sending the kids back to school, but it isn’t too early to start thinking about your kids’ dental health. Summer is the perfect time to make sure your kids won’t miss school due to dental issues. 

Dental Health and School

Did you know that dental issues and mouth-related diseases are the number one reason kids miss school? You can head that statistic off by ensuring your kids’ teeth are bright, clean and healthy! Make sure they:
  • Brush for 2 minutes 2x a day with a fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss 1x a day
  • Get regular dental check-ups with an experienced dentist that includes an exam, cleaning and x-rays (when needed)
And because kids won’t have to take time off of school for their teeth, summer is the perfect time to schedule their dental appointment with Dr. Garcia! This also means that their next appointment will probably be in December or January during their winter break!
