We know that when you add the need for dental checkups and cleanings on top of what is likely already a very high pile of tasks and priorities and things to do, it can become a bit challenging to get your visits planned out. As a result, you may be prone to missing them, forgetting to schedule them until you’ve already passed the six-month mark, and more. Our Silver City, NM team reminds you that this is a very necessary part of your preventive care! So, take some advice that’s sure to help.

#1: Schedule Them Way In Advance

When you tend to have trouble keeping up with dental checkups and cleanings, we have to ask: Are you the type of person to wait and wait and then call us up when you remember that you need a visit? If so, it is likely going to be to your benefit to schedule ahead of time. As in, months ahead of time. That way, you’re not letting procrastination get the best of you. You’re just … ready!

#2: Choose Less Busy Times Of The Year

Maybe you have quite a busy schedule. As a result, it’s important to you to focus on scheduling dental checkups and cleanings when things don’t feel so jam packed full of stuff to do. Take a look at your annual calendar. Figure out two dates that are about six months apart that occur when you might be able to best set up preventive care for yourself. As mentioned, go ahead and schedule the dates well ahead of time, so you don’t come up against scheduling problems by waiting too long to call us.

#3: Pick Obvious Times Of The Year

If your schedule is open enough to schedule dental checkups and cleanings during any of the 12 months of the year, you might want to choose times that will be quite obvious to you as you plan out your life priorities. For instance, particularly if you have kids, you will always remember that summer vacation is time for a visit and that winter break is the next time for a visit with us. Summer fun and the winter holidays are easy “signs” that will remind you about your smile. Keep those visits apart by about six months for your best results and this will be an easy pattern to stick to!
