Don’t wait. Call Desert Smiles in Glendale today to schedule your family’s back-to-school checkups with Phoenix-area general and cosmetic dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox.You may still be flaunting summer tans lines but back-to-school time is at hand so a visit to your Phoenix dentist at Desert Smiles, our general or cosmetic dentistry practice in Glendale, is a must for starting the school year off right.

Why include a dental checkup with your back-to-school preparations?

Here are three reasons:

  • Back-to-School Dental Check-Up Reason No. 1: Protecting your student athlete. When children, teens and college-age athletes are injured in sports, there’s a very good chance that a dental trauma will be involved. To properly protect your youth athlete, ask your dentist for a custom-fitted mouth guard.
  • Back-to-School Dental Check-Up Reason No. 2:Supporting academic performance. Dental health problems and dentist office visits are a leading reason that kids miss school. Parents can head off this school-year distraction by addressing issues with your child’s teeth, mouth or gums before school starts.
  • Back-to-School Dental Check-Up Reason No. 3:Promoting overall health and wellness. Dental health problems are often linked to larger systemic health issues. A routine dentist visit helps zap tooth decay and encourage better home dental-health hygiene.
