Why Is Summer a Good Time to See Your Dentist?

Summertime is Dental Checkup Time

It’s not like we should need a good time to see our dentist, but for most of us convenience is a key factor.

With everything else going on in life, sometimes scheduling – and/or keeping – that dentist appointment can prove challenging at best.

But summer is the smile season, and you shouldn’t neglect your smile just because there’s too much other stuff to do.

See Your Dentist in the Summer

It’s true, we actually smile more in summer!

And as it turns out, summertime is one of the best times to visit your dentist for that biannual – or thrice annual depending on your eating, coffee, smoking, dipping, or otherwise bad for your dental & overall health habits.

Why is summer the perfect time to see your dentist?

With the interest of giving credit where credit is due, Delta Dental of Colorado recently published these three reasons why summertime is dental health checkup time.

3 Reasons to See Your Dentist in the Summer

1. Convenience

With the kids out of school there’s no reason for evening or weekend appointments to squeeze in, there are no leaves to rake, no snow to shovel, and more leisure time to enjoy the nicer weather.

This is one reason which makes scheduling some dentist face time a heck of a lot more convenient in summer.

Even if you don’t have kids, seeing your dentist in the summer is more convenient because you can avoid the back to school rush that your dentist experiences every August & September…which equates to more convenient available appointment times!

2. Accomplishment

It feels good to kick back with an ice cold beverage and reflect on all that you accomplished during the day.

Picture the sense of accomplishment achieved by scheduling & keeping your summertime dental appointment…and that of your entire family.

We all enjoy that clean fresh feeling we get after a quick smile shape up & teeth cleaning.

It’s also the relief of knowing your diligent daily dental hygiene regimen is paying dividends by saving you money on more costly treatment neglect & substandard self-care bring.

You teeth & gums are healthy, mission accomplished.

3. Coolness

We’re not just talking about your super-cool dentist, or their cutting-edge cool tools & modern technology employed to make your summer smile sparkle.

If the dog days of summer get you down, go see your dentist!

As expertly noted in the Delta Dental blog post…

if your dentist’s office is like most, it’s crisp, cool, and air-conditioned. Take a break from the heat for some dentistry A/C. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your frosty check-up. You might not be on the beach, but much like the water in the Caribbean, your smile will be crystal clear.
