Dr. Dental Stresses Importance of Back-to-School Dental Checkups


Many States Now Mandate That Children Regularly Visit the Dentist

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (PRWEB) August 15, 2018

Dr. Dental, a family-owned dental practice with multiple locations spread across Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and New Jersey, knows the importance of offering back-to-school dental checkups.

With summer coming to an end, it's time for parents to start thinking about getting their children organized for the return of school. Once the academic year begins, homework and extracurricular activities can jam up schedules, making it difficult to find time for vital dentist appointments.

By booking a back-to-school checkup, parents ensure their children remain healthy and are complying with federal and state laws. In the United States, many states now request that students undergo mandatory dental checkups. Countless children throughout the U.S. are affected by tooth decay and other oral health concerns. When kids are suffering from oral hygiene issues, they may have a harder time focusing in school, or might miss school altogether because they're in pain.

By making checkups mandatory, some state officials hope to eliminate some of these problems, making sure kids are able to provide their full attention to their academics while remaining healthy.

"Dr. Dental understands the importance of incorporating a dental checkup into your child's back-to-school routine," said Dr. Julia Faigel, Dr. Dental Clinical Director. "By making sure your child gets a check up and any needed dental work done before heading back to school, parents can help make back to school time a healthy and happy time."

Back-to-School Dental Checkups

Dental checkups are recommended every six months for people of all ages. Your child will meet with a skilled Dr. Dental dentist who will examine the overall health of your child's mouth, including their teeth, tongue, and gums. Next, a cleaning will take place. Receiving regular professional dental cleanings are essential for maintaining quality oral health and for catching any potential health problems before they escalate. Regular cleanings are extremely helpful when it comes to preventative care. Additionally, some families may opt to have their children's mouths X-rayed, which can help dentists check to see how your child's teeth are developing.

Dr. Dental offices can be found throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and New Jersey. Make sure your child is receiving the best possible dental care by booking their back to school dental appointment today.
