Summer Break: The Best Time for Pediatric Dental Appointments

Summer break is right around the corner. Families use this time to rest and relax, travel, and the kids enjoy a few weeks away from school. Now that there is finally a lull in your child’s schedule, make their oral health and hygiene a priority! At Sea of Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we offer convenient dental care for your little ones to ensure that they’re happy and healthy throughout the entire year.

Making a summer appointment with our team at one of our offices in Yardley, Bensalem, or Warrington during your child’s school break has a number of benefits:

1. Come In For An Appointment On Your Own Schedule  

We know it can be difficult to make the time to bring your child to the dentist’s office in the morning, especially if it requires missing work or interferes with their school schedule. During summer break, you’ll have one less schedule to worry about! This makes it easier to book an appointment on your terms, at a convenient time.

2. Most Extracurricular Activities Are Also On Break

Extracurriculars like sports and clubs can make it difficult to bring your little ones to the dentist even after school during the school year. However, many of these activities also break for the summer, or at least offer more flexibility during vacation, which makes things easier for you. Take advantage of the down time while you can!

3. Check in on Your Little One’s Teeth Before the Holidays

From Halloween candy to Thanksgiving pie, Christmas cookies and New Year’s sweets, there are a lot of ways that upcoming holidays can damage your child’s teeth. Scheduling a summer appointment will ensure that we catch any potential issues before they are made worse by all the holiday feasting. Preventive care also includes fluoride treatments and sealants, which can protect your child’s teeth for the rest of the year. 

4. Get the Most Out of Your Dental Benefits

If you have a dental plan, any benefits that aren’t used throughout the year will be wasted. Typically, insurance plans cover two preventive appointments per year. Now that 2019 is halfway over, summer break is a perfect opportunity to put your benefits to use!
