It’s that time of year again! Summer is coming to an end, and the excitement of the upcoming school year has kicked in. We can’t avoid it even if we tried, and it is everywhere. This time of year you can go into almost any store and see notebooks, pencils, folders, backpacks, and many other necessities for school lining the aisles.
It is an exciting time for us as well. August is one of our most enjoyable months as we begin our Early Childhood Prevention Program. Each year we go into Elementary schools, daycare facilities, and other centers which care for education and well being of our children. Through this program, we can educate youngsters on their oral health and how to have healthy teeth and gums.
One way we support setting up young children for success is by making life a bit easier for parents! Every August, for one month, only we offer a back to school promotion, $49 Dental Cleanings and Check-Up! In addition to our back to school promotion. We also provide a variety of scheduling options, which include morning, day, evening, and Saturday appointments.
Education is vital in every child’s life, and we love doing our part in ensuring that this upcoming school year is the best one yet!
You might be asking yourself, why does it matter? Have you ever thought about the correlation between oral health and school performance?
“Scientists from the Ostrow School of Dentistry at the University of Southern California came to this conclusion after examining nearly 1,500 socioeconomically disadvantaged elementary and high school children in the Los Angeles Unified School District and matching their oral health status to academic achievement and attendance records.” (Colgate; Poor oral health can mean missed school, low grades;2019)
It is as simple as when kids need to go to the dentist frequently; they are missing school. If your child is regularly experiencing oral pain, focusing, and paying attention to the teacher can take a back seat to the pain that they are feeling.
For some families, dental care can fall second to other necessities. The Center of Dental Professionals aims to make dental care available for all children and families. The current promotion that we have going on is open to children from kindergarten to senior year. We want every child to be successful and make this school year the best one yet!
