It’s over 100 degrees in Mansfield, Texas this week, which makes it hard to believe that most schools are back in session soon. Mansfield Independent School District returns from summer break on August 15th, which is just a couple of weeks away. The remaining weeks of summer are a great time to visit the family dentist. The schedules are a bit more relaxed during the summer, which makes it a lot easier to make and keep a dental appointment. If you or anyone in your family is going back to school, schedule a consultation now for a check-up before your return to your busy schedule. 

School Means Busy

When school is in session, it can feel like the family is being pulled in ten different directions (especially if your family has multiple kids). It can be more challenging to take the kids to a dental appointment when they have to be taken out of school. With the usual laidback nature of summer time, it can be easier to schedule a dental consultation. Summer time can also be a better time to deal with any issues your dentist might find. Rather than deal with a problem that may take some healing time and take someone away from football or class, treatment can be done during the last few weeks of summer. Some kids get new clothes for going back to school, but why not get a refresher for the smile, too?

Going Away to College

If your son or daughter is leaving the nest for the first time (or if they’ve come and gone before), you want to send them off in good health. Visiting the dentist before class starts up again can be a lot easier than dealing with a toothache from 200 miles away. Even when they are away at college, it is still important for them to visit the dentist at least twice a year.
