If you have a child heading off to college this fall, we’re confident you have a “to-do” list to conquer in preparation for the dreaded drop off day. At Jefferson Dental Care, we know it can be an emotional time as you prepare to drop your child off at college, and we’d like to help give you a peace of mind that you’re setting your college student up for dental success.
Sending your college student off is often compared to a bird flying out of its nest for the first time. If you want your child to be able to dentally “soar” while in school, here are some ways you can help ensure a safe and healthy “flight.”
Soaring To Dental Success
If your student’s dorm room does not have a sink in it, why not purchase an easy carrying case to be carried to and from the bathrooms? Make sure it’s stocked with fluoride toothpaste, dental floss, and a new toothbrush. The American Dental Association offers helpful hints for keeping a toothbrush clean.
Book a dental cleaning and checkup with us before he leaves your home. College students are busy and most likely won’t have time to find a new dentist in their college town and make it in for the scheduled appointment. Our dental professionals will examine and clean your student’s teeth and mouth to ensure overall oral health. Take time to book the next appointment for a time when they’re home visiting on a break as well. Colgate offers on how often a person should visit the dentist per year.
