Dental Care Buddy System: Helpful Ideas

It might seem like a very simple suggestion … and that’s because it is! Remember, however, that in many cases, it’s the easiest of ideas that will help you move forward with accomplishing your goals. When it comes to dental care, our Southlake, TX team reminds you that sometimes, all you need is to practice the buddy system! You remember this from childhood: You partner up with someone and you work together! Curious about how this might play out as you strive to protect your oral health? We’ve got examples ready!

Use It For Dental Hygiene With Someone

Maybe you have a surprisingly easy time walking by your toothbrush and toothpaste in the morning, as you think to yourself, “I’ll do it tonight” and “I’ll do better tomorrow!” Unfortunately, it takes only one day for missed care to negatively impact your oral health. Instead of dealing with this sort of issue, consider an easy fix by trying out the buddy system! Text a friend that you brushed and flossed. Brush and floss next to your spouse, so you’re both getting your dental hygiene accomplished. Practice dental care with the kids! Whatever it takes to protect your oral health.

Be Accountable With A Trusted Person For Visits!

Visits can be tricky. You know that dental care that’s successful and that helps you avoid oral health problems is going to have to include dental checkups and cleanings. You’re supposed to have them every six months. However, when one of them passes you by and your teeth still seem to be okay, you may just sweep this detail under the rug. Why not stay on track instead by adding some accountability into the mix? Maybe you and a friend, relative, partner, etc. decide to keep up with this detail together. It makes it so much easier!

Shop With A Spouse, Friend, Etc.

Need a dental hygiene product for yourself but you really don’t know what to get, could use some guidance, or just really enjoy shopping with a buddy? Go for it! Make this a fun shopping trip, rather than a chore, so you head home with whatever it is you need for your dental care (and so you enjoy the process). We remind you that when smile care is fun, it’s much easier to follow through with on a daily basis!
