Thanksgiving is next week, which means that Winter Break for schools in the Mansfield, Texas area is just around the corner. When families have time off of school (and maybe work), it makes for a great time to go visit the dentist. While you will want to use most of that free time to relax and drink hot cocoa, you can also use some of those free weekdays to schedule appointments. If you have a child coming home from college, it is another great time to have them check in with their family dentist. Prepare for the winter break early by making the family’s appointments as soon as you can. 

Using That Time Off

The school year can be a hectic time full of homework, extracurricular activities, sports, and fun time. It can be hard to schedule a dental appointment when you have to take time off work and also take your child out of school. An exam and cleaning early in the winter break can allow your dentist or hygienist to give some helpful tips to your family on how to practice better oral hygiene.

Using Those Benefits

Most dental insurance benefits do not roll over into the next calendar year. If you have preventive treatment coverage as part of your plan, you could have exams and cleanings that could be left on the table. Your dental team can help you sort through your coverage and benefits to make sure you are using it the best way you can.

Starting the Year Off Well

Routine exams and cleanings are the cornerstone of a healthy smile. Using winter break to visit the dentist can help give your families clean and healthy smiles to start 2019 off right. While you are out shopping for the holidays, pick up some new hygiene supplies, too, to stock up for 2019!

Winter break is a good time for oral health!
