Smile Reminders: As The Holidays Draw Near 

You know that as the holiday season draws nearer and nearer, there are probably some things that we have to say about your child’s smile. If you really concentrate and put your mind to it, you’re guessing that there are some details you would be able to conjure up on your own in terms of additional failsafes you should put into place just to be sure you’re really ready for unexpected hazards. However, with that said, it would make things much easier if our Dallas, TX team gives you some reminders! No problem. We’re always more than happy to do all that we can to keep your little ones’ (and teens’) oral health safe and sound.

It’s A Good Time For Smile-Related List Making

Happen to love a good, solid, informational list? During holiday time there is so much to remember that it’s easy to forget stuff you really need. Here are some helpful list ideas that we encourage you to keep in mind:

  • If you are going to have visitors at your home, make a shopping list to ensure you have extra dental hygiene items on hand!
  • Traveling? Write a travel list and shopping list to ensure you have the oral health items you and your children need (and so you remember to actually bring them with you).
  • Draw up that gift list and see if you can come up with some smile-related presents, such as a powered brush or special toothpaste for the kids!

It’s A Very Good Time For Your Child’s Checkup!

You may be thinking, “But I’m busy! This doesn’t seem like a very good time for a dental checkup!” We know. You have all of those aforementioned lists to attend to and more! However, we remind you that the oral health of your whole family should be at the top of those lists. Taking just a bit of time for prevention will mean locking in healthy smiles for the holiday season and beyond (so you’re not dealing with the much less convenient task of addressing smile problems you could have avoided!).

It’s An Amazing Time To Receive Restorative Care

Yikes! Unless you want a crying child, a child with a toothache, or any other type of smile-related upset during the holidays (and what should be very enjoyable holidays), then it’s a very good idea to schedule restorative care that you know your kiddo needs (or that you suspect) just as soon as you possibly can!
