So your college student is out on his/her own, or so they think? Chances are doctor and dentist visits won’t rank up there on their schedule like exams, labs, or weekend parties. Sounds like Mom or Dad might need to help their student take some time to preserve that smile.
Routine is Everything
Everyone knows that routine dental checkups are recommended every 6 months, so it is a good idea to work that into your student’s schedule, if you expect they will be home between semesters. For those who may attend college further from home and may not return home as frequently, that can be tricky, but a checkup during the holidays will do. Next time you send a college care package, toss in a new toothbrush and some floss, plus a note showing the upcoming appointment. It will be a gentle reminder to them about dental care near and far from home.
At North Tonawanda Family Dentistry we specialize in treating every age in your family, and we will do our best to keep your college student up to date with checkups and treatment.
