Tooth Decay doesn’t take a vacation!
Did you know that dental disease is the most common childhood disease and that in Canada alone, an estimated 2.26 million school days are missed each year due to dental illnesses?
Statistics also claim that by time they reach kindergarten, over 40% of children have already had some cavities.
So many things in the classroom compete for your child’s attention and learning can be difficult enough without a toothache being one of those distractions.
Preparations for the upcoming school year will come soon enough, and if you are already thinking ahead and want to avoid disappointment you may want to schedule any outstanding treatment or re-care appointments sooner than later. Our August schedule tends to fill up quickly with patients hoping to visit to us before school begins and we will do our best to accommodate your appointment request.
Book your children’s oral health care assessment today and send them off to school with a healthy mouth ~ It’s a great way to start off the school year!
