The start of the new school year is just weeks away. It’s time to get to these items on your back-to-school checklist, so your kids are ready for classes to begin:
□ Pens and pencils
□ Dental checkup
Oral health problems can be a distraction for a child who is trying to focus on a lesson or a class assignment. Serious problems can require taking a child out of school for dental care.
Now is the time to prevent problems with a professional dental cleaning or catch them during a dental exam. If an oral health issue does exist, it’s better to do something about it now than to get a call from the school nurse in a month or so.
