It’s August and the summer is winding down. Millions of children will soon head into a new school year. Routine dental examinations help ensure that students are in good health before school begins; making it important that you don’t overlook a dental checkup for your child. A dental examination is extremely important and should be a regular part of back-to- school preparations.
The State of Illinois requires children enrolled in kindergarten, 2nd grade, and 6th grade to have and examination done by a licensed dentist. You may visit the Chicago public schools health and wellness portal for more information.
It also important to note, that more than one-half of all children aged 5 to 9 years have at least one cavity or filling. A painful tooth or chronic dental problem can lead to difficulty eating, speaking and concentrating.
We are available Monday through Friday, 10am to 7pm. Schedule your appointment today, so we can have all of your child’s forms filled out by the first day of school. As the school year approaches, so does our busy season, here at Sloop Dental. If you or anyone in your family is due for their six month cleaning, we suggest you schedule your appointment today!
Best of luck to all of the students, this upcoming school year, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
