As January comes to a close, we hope you haven’t lost your interest in your New Years resolutions! Research shows that over the next few months is when people will either make or break their commitment to maintain a newfound health. When it comes to keeping your mouth healthy, your relationship with our office here in Fairfield, Ohio is very important. Take a look below at some things you can do to make and keep a plan of oral health for 2015.
One of the best things you can do for yourself is to go ahead and schedule your dental appointments for the year. When you schedule appointments 6-12 months in advance, you are more likely to maintain those appointments. Don’t worry, we’ll remind you that they are coming! Instead of trying to fit dental appointments into your already busy schedule, you will find that everything else fits around your dental appointments.
Before you come into the office for your exam and cleaning, write down any questions you might have for us. Trying to remember questions when you come into a doctor’s office is difficult because there are so many other things going on and questions being asked of you. Write your questions down, and let us know that you would like to talk. We’ll make sure you get your answers before you leave to go back home.
In the moment of a dental appointment, it can be difficult to remember everything. We encourage our patients to listen well, take notes, or ask us for paperwork concerning advice we give. You might also consider bringing along a family member or friend to help you remember all of the new information. The advice we give you in the dental office can make or break your oral health.
Part of making 2015 the year of your smile is to make sure that 2015 is the year you improve your time in the dental office. Use our tips above, and contact us when you have questions. Let us be your link to great oral health care, and you will see an improvement with the way you look and feel. We can’t wait to change your smile very soon!
