Summer vacation is the most fun time of year for most kids. Maybe it’s all about playing video games, staying up late, and snacking on junk food—things most kids love to do. Not to be neglected, however, are some faithful friends you desperately need long after the sun-soaked days of summer are over. Who are they? Your teeth!
Taking Time for Oral Health
Enjoying camping trips and toasting marshmallows with friends is what summer vacation is all about. But crawling into a sleeping bag without the usual teeth brushing and flossing can take its toll on your children’s teeth over time.
The new school year is like a clean slate just waiting to be filled with good memories, and opportunities for growth and adventure.
That’s why we want to remind you of the importance of booking your professional teeth cleaning and checkup for your children —before the rush on the new school year is upon us.
Trusting Your Family to Our Dentistry
At Bjorklund Dental Designs, we provide excellent Wayzata family dentistry to prolong smiles’ lives. Our thorough hygiene maintenance is dedicated only for any student ages 16 and above, and their smiles are in good hands under the expert care of trained hygienists. We love to work with patients in a warm and encouraging manner to benefit their oral health.
“My family has seen Dr. Bjorklund now for over 25 years, and we are always very happy with his friendly atmosphere, helpful staff, understanding of different financial situations in patient’s lives, and excellent dental work.” – Debbie S.
We want to educate your children that healthy teeth do more than provide your child with an opportunity to show off their smile for their school photo. They enable your child to be more confident, allow for easier social development, and help to promote good health.
That’s a much more appealing alternative than being self-conscious about their grin, coping with the discomfort of cavities, and missing days of school from pain and infection associated with tooth decay.
Our patients love our practice because of our commitment to make smiles healthy and beautiful, which is why many families have stuck with us for many decades.
The proof is from their words:
