Back to School Smile Prep for Your Child’s Oral Health Success

It seems like just yesterday we were gearing up for summer fun, and summer bbq’s but back to school is just around the corner yet again. Why not get the kids off to a great start this school year with back to school smile prep?

Three ways you can prep for your child’s oral health success!

1. Start (or continue) proper brushing and flossing habits. Whether your kids love to brush and floss or could use a little nudging twice a day to keep up the routine, good brushing and flossing habits are essential in back to school smile prep. As schedules get busier and life returns to a more hectic school year pace, already established good habits of brushing and flossing will be easier to maintain. Help your kids see the benefits of good smile prep and the importance of regularly brushing and flossing.

2. Get healthy (and creative) with school lunch and snacks. Help your kids understand the benefits of healthy eating. “Good for you” food is fuel for the brain and the smile! When you talk to your children about making healthier lunch and snack choices, remind them that a proper diet is a great way to maintain an awesome smile! With a little prep and planning, your kids can make healthy choices at school, or maybe you can work together to prepare a smile-healthy lunch at home! And don’t forget those after school snacks! Talk to Dr. Low about delicious, smile-protecting after school snacks!

3. Check up on your smile health. Healthy smiles and smiles in need of some TLC both benefit from regularly scheduled dental cleanings and check-ups. Make sure your smile has stayed strong, and your oral health is its best by scheduling dental appointments for you and your family regularly. Regularly scheduled check-ups at Above and Beyond Dentistry is the best way to keep a close eye on oral health. We can help you detect small problems before they develop into larger ones.

Back to school is a perfect time for scheduling cleanings and check-ups that put our family on track for smile success from the beginning of the school year, to picture day and beyond.

Regular check-ups at Above & Beyond Dentistry are the ideal step in prepping for back to school smile success. Ask Dr. Low about age-appropriate at-home dental habits to help your child have optimum oral health. Call us today to schedule cleanings and exams for you and your entire family!

About Dr Kevin Low

It could be argued that Dr.Kevin Low was born to be a dentist. Dr. Low has been around drills and prophy-paste his whole life, as his father was also a practicing dentist. As a teen, he would volunteer in his dad's dental office, and those days he spent watching his father work made him realize that dentistry was more than just drilling and filling. He watched patients come into his dad's office self-conscious, and leave as people who could not wait to show off their new smiles. Dr. Low saw the transformational impact restoring someone's smile had on their life, and knew he wanted to be the guy to do it.

Armed with the knowledge and passion of a caring and skilled doctor, he began his search for the perfect place to practice.
