Yes, it’s a very wise thing to teach your children to share! You want them to grow up to be kind and giving human beings, after all. However, this can become just a tad bit confusing in relation to oral health. You want your children to learn that “sharing is caring” but you don’t want them to share germs! So, let’s walk through some specifics you may not have considered just yet to ensure you’re making some important distinctions between good sharing…and then the not so good.
When you hear that focusing on routine-making can be an extremely valuable tool within dental care for your child, you may think to yourself, “But I already have a daily routine!” If you’ve already got times and practices for smile care all laid out on a day-to-day basis, then you may have already mastered the art of sticking to a schedule. However, if you’ve got the ball rolling as far as your usual activities (such as taking kids to school, heading out for extra-curricular activities, bedtime, etc.), you may want to allow this to spill right on over into things like brushing, flossing, and visits. See what we mean!

Let’s offer you that refresher you need, so you’re good to go once summer is in full swing!
When you go to the store alone, you can breeze through with your list, get everything you want, and leave. You don’t ever hear, “Can I have this, please?!” as your child begs for some sort of candy that is definitely not on the list for smile health. So, you may wonder to yourself, how to approach shopping when you’ve got your kiddos in tow without dealing with an hour-long battle of the wills? We can offer at least a few potentially helpful tips!

If your kids absolutely love coming in for dental visits, then you don’t really need to worry about the car ride over. Perhaps your little ones are already accustomed to professional dental care, so heading in for a cleaning and checkup is no biggie! However, if there’s any aspect of this experience that causes your child to feel a little uneasy, we have some very helpful tips for setting the stage for a nice, easy appointment.
If you’ve been with us for a while, you know that we were the recipient of last year’s honor by D Magazine as a 2017 Best Dentist in Dallas!

Keeping that in mind (and whatever the results), we’d like to thank all of our patients for the time they spend with us. Of course, this is also a lovely time to remind everyone, existing patients and new, about the dental services we offer.
Spring seems like it just began but before you know it, summer will be here and you’ll have all of that lovely summer vacation time to get stuff done.

Of course, since you just might like some reasons why we think sealants are worthy of a spot on your time-off list, we’ve got them ready for you!
