It feels like a million things need to get done before your kids head back to school. School supply shopping, clothes shopping, sports physicals, immunizations, but is a dental exam and cleaning on your list too? Dental healthcare is, unfortunately, often overlooked. 60% of children will have tooth decay by the time they start elementary school. Lack of dental healthcare can lead to bigger problems. Children with tooth decay are more likely to develop ear and sinus infections. Plus, if left unchecked, those tiny carries can turn into a much bigger problem like; root canals, crowns, extractions. Remember to add a dental exam and check up for your children when you are making the back to school to-do list! Bomstad Dental wishes you all a Happy School Year!
