We stand at the threshold of a new school year, with our list of school supplies, hoping to ensure we’re equipping our kids for an amazing school year ahead.
Besides all the school essentials, it’s important to pencil in sports physicals (for the older kids) and a visit to your dentist.
Help your child start the new school year with a smile
If our kids don’t complain of a toothache and we don’t see cavities, most often than not we don’t consider it necessary to schedule an appointment with the dentist. But that’s where things need to change.
Did you know bad breath can be a child’s worst enemy on the first day of school?
A sign of poor oral hygiene is bad breath and no, many times this is not the result of a cavity but can lead up to one forming over time. Accumulated food particles, when left in tooth crevices, are the main cause of bad breath, plus we all know how brutally honest and mean kids can be when in the company of a child with bad breath.
It’s thus recommended that every child, over the age of 1, visits a dentist at least twice a year. Besides a routine check-up, the dentist may recommend teeth cleaning at each bi-annual visit, to ensure overall oral hygiene is maintained, those hard to reach crevices are cleaned out thoroughly and any signs of plaque buildup are crushed.
Ugh! Dental visits are expensive and I don’t have dental insurance!!
You’re not alone!
Did you know there’s an alternative to dental insurance that involves a one-time annual fee and discounted dental visits the whole year?
A few years ago, our family was introduced to DentalPlans.com and it has been our gateway to affordable dental care, since then.
DentalPlans.com partners with thousands of dentists in the nation, thereby being able to provide your family with dental discounts ranging from 10% to 60%, dependent on the sort of dental service required.
