Start the School Year with a #SafeSmile

Though the school year may look different this fall, the Chicago Dental Society (CDS) wants to remind parents that one back-to-school priority remains the same: visiting the dentist is an important part of your child’s personal care routine. Seeing the dentist for a routine check-up prior to the start of school can significantly improve a child’s academic experience and performance. Research shows that dental disease causes kids to miss more than 51 million school hours each year.

Dentists have always taken extra precautions when it comes to preventing the spread of disease. Now, in the era of COVID-19, you may notice additional safety measures and modifications made with your family’s health, safety and comfort in mind. A few changes you can expect to see include:

  • The removal of communal items from the waiting room
  • Increased frequency of deep cleanings between patients
  • Adjusted waiting room layouts to accommodate social distancing
  • Increased personal protective equipment
  • Health screenings prior to your appointment

CDS member dentists know maintaining good oral health is essential to your overall health. Visit the link below to learn more about what to expect at your next dental appointment and to find a CDS dentist near you.
