For many kids, late August marks the end of that sacred time known as summer vacation and signals the start of a new school year. And with a new school year comes months of homework, projects, tests, and extracurricular activities, all of which can leave little time for a dental exam and cleaning with Dr. Giamberardino. So why not schedule your child’s back-to-school checkup now instead of later?
It’s true the beginning of a new school year is also a busy time—you have new clothes and school supplies to buy, on top of making sure there aren’t any last-minute things to take care of. But as busy as life might currently be, isn’t it better to schedule a checkup now, before all the demands of school make time even more scarce?
What to Expect from a Back-to-School Checkup
A back-to-school checkup may not be any different from a normal checkup, but that doesn’t make it any less important. Especially with the holidays coming up, you want to make sure that your child’s teeth are in great shape.
During your child’s back-to-school checkup, Dr. Giamberardino will take a close look at your son or daughter’s smile to check for signs of common oral health problems. We’ll also take X-rays so we can get an even clearer look at how your child’s smile is doing. Then, after a comprehensive exam and a professional cleaning, we can recommend a follow-up service if we need to.
