Back to schoolAdd a Dental Checkup to Your Back-to-School Shopping List

New backpack? Check. First day of school outfit? Check. Dental Exam? Most parents don’t put that on the list, but having a back-to-school ready smile is as important for your child as anything else on your back-to-school shopping list.

A Smile Makes a Great First Impression

If your child is feeling shy about starting a new grade — or even a new school — a smile is a great way to break the ice and make new friends. Studies show that people who smile are perceived as more open, honest, happy and confident. All traits people look for in a friend. Getting your kids a back-to-school ready smile is as easy as making an appointment for a dental exam ASAP.

Squeeze it in Before School Starts

Between homework, after school activities and all the numerous school-related events, it’s way easier to schedule a dental exam during summer than when the school year really gets going. But what if your child is not due for a checkup yet? Most dentists suggest getting an exam at least twice a year,¬†but Dr. Heller says there’s nothing wrong with getting a cleaning before your six months is up. So cross that off your list before September and you won’t have to worry about it ’til Spring!

Strong Teeth Make for Strong Minds

Healthier teeth won’t necessarily help your kid get an A in biology, but studies show there is a connection between tooth decay and poor memory.¬†According to the European Journal of Oral Health, scientists determined that adults who had lost more teeth had a harder time retaining information than people with most of their teeth. Just another reason to send your kid off to school with a healthy smile.

Is your kid ready to rock a new school year? Make an appointment with Dr. Heller for a checkup today!
