You don’t necessarily always want to schedule your dental checkups with us, even when you know it’s a good idea. For some, there’s procrastination that slips in, resulting in one skipped appointment. For others, checkups haven’t happened for years if not decades. While we know that no matter where you are on this spectrum of preventive care avoidance, our Southlake, TX team hopes you will remember something: We welcome you! Now, for some helpful ways to push yourself to pick up the phone to set up your next visit!
Visualize Your Dream Smile
For starters, it’s always helpful to visualize your dream smile. Ask yourself how far away you are from getting to that point. Remind yourself, then, that the starting point to a completely healthy (and more beautiful smile, if that’s something you’re interested in) is achieving your best oral health with the help of our dental care team! Want to get on a path that guides you toward a healthy smile that remains healthy? Well, then, come in for a dental checkup!
Give Yourself A Reward
Another way to give yourself a much needed push to schedule the dental checkups you need once every six months is to contact our team as part of an incentive you’re promising yourself. For instance, if you tell yourself that you can purchase something special or have a special experience if and only if you follow through on your two six-month visits with us for the year, you may find that it becomes easier to call!
Set A Goal
Start with just one goal! Maybe your goal is to have your smile back in good health within one year. Perhaps you want to qualify for teeth whitening by your wedding day. Whatever it is, setting short-term goals (and beginning by seeing us for a dental checkup) can make it much easier to reach longer term goals with ease.
Consider The Benefits Of Prevention
Simply remind yourself that when you keep up with dental care through dental checkups and cleanings and dental hygiene, it saves you time, it saves you money, it’s less time consuming, and it’s just much easier because you don’t require restorative care once you’ve got your oral health on track.
Set Up Twice Annual Checkups
Keep your smile just as healthy as you can keep it by remembering to set up twice-a-year dental checkups and cleanings with our team. See us every six months and you can enjoy oral health that remains in wonderful condition! Schedule care with your Southlake, TX dentist today by calling Gregory Wright, DDS at (817) 481-7999. We gladly serve patients from Southlake and surrounding areas.
