During Dental Checkups: Life Changes To Tell Us About

When you come in to see our Southlake, TX team members for your dental checkup and cleaning (which we hope is happening every six months!), you show up, we examine your smile, we clean your smile, and then you go home! Over the course of this visit, we will talk with you about everything we need to know in terms of catching up! Of course, this may include how your smile is doing, how you are doing, and more. We remind you: If there have been any major life changes, you should definitely let us know! Ready for some examples? Here we go!

When You Learn You’re Pregnant

When you discover that you’re pregnant (congratulations!), we remind you that this is not something you want to keep under wraps. Instead, this is something that you need to bring to our attention right away. Another detail you need to get straight? When you’re pregnant, you want to continue scheduling your dental care with our team. Here’s what you may not realize: As your hormones change, you may become more vulnerable to issues like gingivitis, which you certainly don’t want developing at all. So, keep up with our team and your dental checkups. Keep us informed and we will help keep your smile safe!

If You’re Dealing With An Illness

Have you recently been diagnosed with an illness? We know that you may not really want to talk about it but since your whole body is connected, and since you may be on medication that can impact your oral health, it’s always wise to bring the change to our attention during a dental checkup. Don’t worry! We will be kind and compassionate.

When Anxiety Becomes A Factor

Sometimes, anxiety can show up in an individual’s life. If this happens to you, again, we realize that you may not want to have a long discussion with us about the personal details. However, if you find that it is in any way making it difficult for you to access the dental care that you need, let us know! We will be happy to do all that we can to help.

If You’re Moving Away!

When you’re going to leave our practice because you are moving, please let us know! We would love to be able to say goodbye and to wish you well!
