Then, of course, particularly when you’re up against something new to you, the particulars can start to pile up and seem a bit challenging. We remind you in just about every situation to tell yourself: Smile care is simple! Then, even if you’re not sure you completely believe it, ask us for some help. Our Dallas, TX team insists that as you get your child’s oral health plans squared away and you become accustomed to newly developing habits, all will fall into place.

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?

Good news: The Pumpkin Fest presented by Calloway’s Nursery will make picking a pumpkin into quite the enjoyable outing!
Part of you may shrug your shoulders and think, “Okay, I guess we’ll go in for a dental checkup but I’m not really sure why it’s time for another one!” We understand. You’re busy.

Well, our Dallas, TX team wants you to remember that checkups aren’t all about finding problems. They’re really about preventing them (and doing something about any concerns that have just begun). Let’s help you feel much more enthusiastic about this part of prevention.
