If your child still hasn’t had their back to school checkup, we strongly encourage coming in to make sure they are on their way to a healthy and successful school year. Maintaining good oral health matters because every year school age children miss more than 51 million hours of school due to dental diseases, and cavities are the most common chronic disease in school aged children.

If these statistics scare you, remember that as a parent, you can help your child succeed by helping them to develop and maintain strong oral care habits. Bringing them in routinely for dental checkups helps ensure that their oral health is on track. At Merrill Dental we have seen how prevention and early detection can help your child avoid missing school by keeping their smiles free from oral health pain.

To help avoid dental issues, we offer routine dental cleanings and oral exams for your family. We remove plaque and tartar from their pearly whites and polish their teeth to look their best–just in time for school pictures! Dr. Daniel Merrill will also check for signs of dental problems, especially tooth decay and periodontal disease. We support your efforts to keep your family free from tooth decay and gum disease by finding dental problems early before they take hold and keep them from taking over healthy smiles.

In between dental visits, we recommend using a fluoride toothpaste to protect tooth enamel and keep it strong. Our dedicated team in West Chester, Ohio, is happy to provide quality dental care and are happy to support your efforts to ensure that your child has a successful school year! Please call 513-779-7711 you have any concerns or to schedule a visit.
