You may have already started shopping for back-to-school supplies. But backpacks, notebooks, paper, pencils, and pens are just the start of what you need to start the school year right.
Your kids also need healthy mouths. Each year, students miss more than 51 million hours of class due to oral health problems, according to the American Dental Association.
A recent study also found that kids who report having toothaches are four times more likely to have lower grades than their peers.
As a parent, you want what’s best for your children, which is why we encourage you to complete our dental checklist before classes begin. That includes paying a visit to our Shorewood, IL dental office.
