Keeping Parents Smiling Throughout Fall!

More information about fall, you ask yourself? How could one season elicit so much information? Well, when you look at temps that are ready to dip after a long, hot summer in Dallas, TX, there’s a lot to consider. This is particularly true as our real fall often begins later than the very first day in terms of chilliness, which means once it really feels like autumn: The end of the year is even closer than you may realize! So, without further ado, let’s talk about some things that will definitely help keep you smiling, as you keep your kiddos’ oral health and general well being nice and safe!

Do You Get Flu Shots? Get Going!

As we head further into cooler weather, we will be experiencing an increase in those not-so-friendly illnesses that circulate this time of year, such as influenza. So, whatever steps you generally take to prevent and prepare for the flu, we encourage you to do so now! If you’re a parent who follows through on flu shots on an annual basis, the sooner the better (remember, they may take up to a couple weeks to become effective). Remember, we mention this because we want you to smile, your kids to remain healthy, and to remind you that upper respiratory congestion is all around not wonderful for oral health, so keeping airways clear is very beneficial!

Pull Out That Winter Wardrobe (Scarves Included)

We remind you that it’s time to pull out the winter wardrobe. Sweaters, coats, scarves, and more! Of course, this is very important for keeping kiddos warm on cold days, so they can avoid becoming sick. In addition, remember that covering your child’s lower face with a scarf offers protection from dry mouth, chapped lips, and the oral health issues that can come with them. Plus, it’s just much more comfortable when cold wind snaps about!

Give Dental Benefits A Glance

Do you have dental insurance? If yes, then now is the time to follow through on setting up any type of dental care your child requires to make sure you’re using your coverage. Have you been thinking about signing up for dental insurance? Now is a wonderful time to consider your options, so you can have everything prepared and ready for a brand new year and helpful oral health benefits. Would you like to ask our team some questions?
