Back to school check list: Visit your Ft. Lauderdale family dentist

Backpack? Check. Pencil bag? Check. Haircut? Check. Dental visit? Check!

Twice yearly dental visits are recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA).  Make your family's dental health a priority by scheduling your family's dental check-ups before school starts back.  Once school starts back our schedules get filled with homework and all those extra-curricular activities.  Finding time to visit your family dentist and dental hygienist may be more challenging.

Summer is a great time to visit your family dentist in Ft. Lauderdale.  Family's schedules tend to be a little more relaxed during the summer months lending more flexibility in finding the right time for appointments.  Scheduling during summer means no missed school and resulting make-up work. Summer is a great time not only for the kids to visit the dentist. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), only 64% of adults between the ages of 18 and 65 visit their dentist annually. 

Dental emergencies and toothaches are no fun. During your regular dental check-ups your dentist will be able to identify any issues and make recommendations on treatment before they become a serious issue. Catching any problems before they become real issues can save you from pain as well as expense later. For those teens and young adults who still have wisdom teeth, summer is a great time to schedule wisdom teeth extraction.  

August tends to be a very busy time at most dental offices so we encourge our patients to schedule early to ensure we have time for you! Call the office of Dr. Nancy Rotroff and Dr. Gerard Wasselle in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, at 954-928-1666 so we can reserve time for your family!

Be assured that during this COVID-19 pandemic, our dental office is adhering to both CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and ADA protocols for patient screening and separation as well as the most rigorous sterilization protocols to ensure the safety and health of our valued patients as well as our awesome staff!
