Summer Cleanings, Had Me a Blast!

summer has arrived

Why is it that routine seems to go out the window for summer? Sure, we all know it’s a great feeling to be able to throw that alarm clock out the window for the majority of your break, but that doesn’t mean your dental check-ups should be forgotten about as well!

We all make schedules for our vacations, so our routine check-ups shouldn’t be compromised. Not forgetting to get regular cleanings at Gulfside Dental can have its benefits.

Scheduling your child’s check-up during the school year can be a hassle. Trying to maneuver around work schedules, school times and activities, sports and all that good stuff can make it difficult to squeeze in the time for a visit with one of our doctors at Gulfside Dental. With school being out, a large chunk of that extra blocked-out time gets removed, making it easier to get the kiddos in for their exam. Also, the office’s schedule can typically be busier in the evenings on week days during school time because everyone wants to come in during those post-school hours. That can sometimes lead to longer wait times and less availability for quick scheduling. Now that the kids aren’t in school, their days are more open to be able to come in.

Keeping them on-track also keeps them in the mindset of having great oral hygiene and keeping a structured schedule, even through the chaotic summer. Gulfside Dental’s office staff works diligently to ensure each patient is scheduled for their next appointment and gives reminder calls to make it easier to remember. 

Cleanings in general are a great way to remove excess bacteria and decay from your child’s mouth, which in turn helps with their overall health. This means that your child will be more likely to be free of sickness during the summer and the beginning of the new school year. The check-up is also a precautionary avenue to prevent any cavities or other treatment in the future. Prevention is key!

Another, more cosmetic upside to keeping up with your routine check-ups is being able to have fresh, clean teeth in those summer vacation photos, or your child’s back-to-school photos.

Any one of our superb dentists or hygienists at Gulfside Dental can get you and your family in for your routine check-ups and cleanings. Whether you are a new or existing patient, call any one of our conveniently-located offices to schedule!
