That big first day of school is right around the corner—have you finished getting your child prepared for a brand new year? You may have bought all the notebooks and pencils and backpacks, but there may be one thing that you are forgetting—back-to-school visits to the dentist! When starting a new school year, you want your child to be as comfortable and happy as possible so that she has nothing on her mind but learning new things and making new friends. Here at Dr. Roger Curtiss’ office, we believe that having your child’s teeth cleaned and examined before starting a new school year is of the utmost importance.
These pediatric dental cleanings and exams allow our dentist in Greenlawn to rid your child’s mouth of any built up bacteria and other harmful substances to avoid the development of painful cavities throughout the school year. These routine visits also allow Dr. Curtiss to fully examine the current state of your child’s teeth, and therefore address any problem areas as they arise, rather than having your child struggle because of tooth pain while trying to study in school. At our dentist in Greenlawn’s office, our staff comes together to create a friendly and welcoming environment for children, so it does not need to feel like a chore for your child to come in for their appointment before the school year begins. Each pediatric cleaning includes not only the treatments themselves, but also the education your child needs to begin a lifetime of excellent oral health. Dr. Curtiss and our staff will gently instruct your child on how to best care for their teeth, including making suggestions about brushing and flossing, and giving personalized tips based on your child’s individual needs. At the end of the visit, your child will be smiling bright and ready for the great school year to come.
