As summer vacations begin and many of our college age students are traveling home, many parents are excited and anxious to schedule them to come in for their routine dental visit. It is so important not to forget the significance of dental cleanings and exams while college students are busy and away at school. Most of our patients do their best to arrange their schedules so that they are seen during summer, but our appointments are booking up quickly! Consider this: an average dental hygiene appointment can take 1 to 6 weeks to schedule depending on the individuals flexibility. If any cavities are detected at the exam, we will also need time to schedule them to see one of our doctors for the restorative work. We are doing our best to add hours as needed and meet the needs of our patients and look forward to seeing all of you soon!
