Go Back to School With Your Best Smile Back to School With Your Best Smile

It’s hard to believe it, but it’s Back to School time in Southern Pines! Your kids are just about ready with backpacks, supplies, and a first-day outfit – but what about a clean, healthy smile? The beginning of the school year is the perfect time for a cleaning at Moubry Family Dentistry. We will assess and point out any issues so that your student can put good practices into their school year routine from the beginning. Also, having a fresh smile can be just the confidence boost kids need when starting a new grade or new school.

Now that the relaxed days of summer are past, your whole family will naturally fall back into a bedtime and waking routine. Remember to instill good habits at the beginning of school so kids stick with it all year long:

– Every day, your student should be brushing, flossing and rinsing with fluoride before school and before bed.
– While you’re at the store for school supplies, pick up a new toothbrush for each child. These should be replaced every few months anyhow, so what better time for a fresh start?
– Be mindful of what you pack for snacks and lunch. Sticky, gummy foods, and sugary drinks contribute to tooth decay. Foods like apples, carrots, and crunchy green veggies are great snacks (note: students with braces should stick to their suggested snacks as these may damage brackets).
– If your student participates in after school sports, make sure they have a well-fitted mouth guard to protect their teeth during practices and games.
