There is a classic old expression that warns us how “time flies”. And this is true whether we are having fun or not. As the summer begins and you and your family are just starting to enjoy those lazy days of school vacation, we need to spoil the fun a bit and remind you that there are a few things you’ll want to do long before you’re out buying back-to-school supplies. One of the most important is a child’s dental exams. At Boss Dental Care in Corpus Christi, TX, we encourage all parents to get your entire family a dental exam before school starts.

As your preferred dentist in Corpus Christi, we don’t need to remind you that the back-to-school routine is one full of crazy schedules and confusion. This can make it all too easy to forget your child’s preventative dentistry requirements. Because we offer children’s dentistry, we can provide a comprehensive dental exam, double check your child’s dental hygiene, and show them any points that need improvement. We can get them on a new and improved dental hygiene routine, recommend the right brushes, pastes, and rinses, and address all their general dentistry long before their new school year starts.

If you get your child their dental exam before school starts, they will already be on this new routine and it can allow you to also book your follow up cleanings and visits before the calendar (yours and ours) gets overly full. Lots of parents think to themselves that this year they will book a dental exam before school starts, but the fun of summer can so easily get in the way. Allowing oral health to slip between the cracks is never a good idea, and particularly with growing children.

What to Expect

If you do book your child’s dental exam before school starts, we will do the typical comprehensive dental exam, including any x-rays needed. We run oral cancer checks and do a cleaning. We discuss oral hygiene, but we also look at the health of the child’s bite. If they would benefit from treatment for misalignment, we can get them started on that treatment during the summer, allowing them to be used to it long before school begins. If they need any restorations, it is much easier to do when they are not busy at school.
