Do you hear that? If you listen closely, you can make out the sounds of Columbia, TN children grunting and complaining. It’s that time of year again – back to school. It’s always an exciting time for kids and parents to start a new school year. All the PTO meetings, teacher-parent conferences, extracurricular activities – the list goes on and on. Good luck getting your schedule nailed down during this time. Before the insanity takes over, it’s a good idea to schedule a checkup/cleaning for your kids. This will help them keep their mouths healthy throughout the year. Kids are highly impressionable, especially when they’re around other kids. If one child says that brushing isn’t that important to another child, problems can arise. You don’t want your children heading down the path to bad oral hygiene – it can have major consequences down the road.
Our office welcomes patients of all ages, including your kids. We want them to make a good impression on their first day of school. One way of doing that is by having clean teeth. Prep your kid’s oral health for the school year by scheduling a checkup/cleaning with our dental team.
