Questions to Ask at a Back-to-School Dental Visit

Posted on July 27th, 2021

Baltimore dentists Dr. Wolfson & Dr. Krempel of Hamilton Family Dental shares ideas for questions parents and children can ask at a back-to-school dental visit.Some schools require a back-to-school dental visit, but even if yours doesn’t, right before school starts is a good time to schedule one of your child’s regular checkups. Dr. Wolfson & Dr. Krempel can take care of any problems so your child won’t have to miss class after school starts, and if oral hygiene routines got a little lax over the summer, Hamilton Family Dental can help get kids back on track.

Here are a few questions to ask at your child’s appointment:

  • How is my child’s overall dental health?
  • Will my child get a cleaning today? 
  • Does my child need an x-ray?
  • Do you recommend sealants?
  • Can you check my child’s mouthguard?

These questions cover all the bases for general dental health and safety. A mouthguard will be checked for wear, tear and fit in case a replacement will be needed, while sealants can help prevent cavities in permanent molars. A professional cleaning picks up where brushing and flossing leave off to give your child a nice bright smile to begin their school year.

If you need to schedule a dental checkup for your child at any time of year, give us a call today!
