Smile Time: Easy Tips For Weekend Catch-Up

During the week, there’s so much going on! By the time Friday rolls around, you may realize you meant to call us to schedule your child’s dental visit, you planned on researching electric toothbrushes but it didn’t happen, or you meant to call us with a question but you totally forgot (while you were doing 10 million other things). Take a breather. This is a common concern for most parents and just about every other adult out there! So, what can you do to play catch-up, so you don’t get stuck in a cycle of accidental procrastination when it comes to your kids’ smile care? Our Dallas, TX team has some suggestions for any weekend you see fit!

Plan A 10 Minute Window For Yourself

Our team encourages you to take as little as 10 minutes for yourself. Dedicate this time however you need to, such as by telling your spouse you’re locking yourself in your home office for 10 minutes, so please keep an eye on the kids or by turning on a movie that everyone else is watching, while you zone out for just a moment. Take this time to grab your calendar/planner, figure out what’s missing, what you need to do to get caught up with your child’s smile care, and you’ll feel much more relaxed. The details might simply be recognizing that you need to call us or jotting down a question you’ve been meaning to ask.

Stare At Your Calendar

Now, with the bit of time you have left that you’ve dedicated to thinking about your child’s smile care, check your day planner or calendar. Take a moment to figure out when the best time will be for your child’s next dental checkup, that filling you meant to schedule, etc. and write yourself a reminder of the dates and times that will work. Of course, it may seem simple when you consider how quickly you can sort out the details, but when you have so many other tasks to get to through the week (and you’d like to relax over the weekend), stuff can really pile up! Fortunately, you’re almost there.

Schedule A Reminder In Your Phone To Call Us Monday

Grab your phone and set a reminder to notify you to call us on Monday. Not super into digital technology at the moment? Make a note wherever it is you check notes (potentially in that planner you’ve already been staring at) and simply schedule time to call us. You’ll ask your questions, set up the next visit, and you’ll be all caught up in regard to your little one’s smile care!
