It’s that time of year again! It’s time for the kids to head back to school. There’s a lot to get done before that big day when you drop the kids off for their first day of school. But have you remembered the dentist? After the summer you and your kids have had, your child’s teeth deserve a deep dental cleaning before the school year begins.

Here at Ridge Park Dental, you can be assured your child’s teeth will look their best for the upcoming school year. Our team is going to show you what you can expect from our office when your child comes in for their cleaning appointment.

When you and your child come in for a dental cleaning and exam, our staff will first X-ray your child’s teeth to evaluate their smile and view any decay or damage that could be hidden on their teeth. Our staff will then clean their teeth by removing any visible plaque or tartar, both of which can lead to tooth decay (cavities) and gum disease. Afterwards we will floss and polish your child’s teeth, ensuring they have a healthy and bright smile for their big first day of school. Our dentist will also examine their gums, teeth and jaw for any other signs of damaging dental conditions or diseases.

After your dental cleaning, we will schedule another cleaning appointment for a date six months from then. This will ensure your child has clean and healthy teeth for not only the school year, but for years to come.

Your child deserves the best, especially right before school. Start the school year off right with a deep dental cleaning from our staff by giving us a call at 801.773.5285!
