If you tend to miss your dental appointments because they slip your mind, our dental team encourages you to change your ways. Our doctor, Dr. Robert A. McCulla, strongly recommends attending your checkups every six months to prevent gum disease and other major dental issues. If you miss them, your smile could be in grave danger. So, please try these things to avoid missing or forgetting about your dental appointment:

-Set a reminder on your phone: This is as easy as it sounds. All you need to do is enter your appointment into your phone calendar. As you do so, set an alarm on the event for the day before or an hour before the appointment. It’s easiest if you enter the event right when you schedule your appointment at our office.

-Schedule your appointment at a time that fits your lifestyle: Sometimes it’s easier to schedule six-month “To-Do” tasks at the same time, like dog vet appointments, landscape chores, and even your children’s dental appointments. If all of these tasks are around the same time, you’ll know it’s time for your appointment when you’re checking off your list. It’s also best to avoid scheduling your appointment at the end of the year if that time tends to get busy for you.
