Ways to Remember to Go To Your Next Dental Exam

Short of the dental assistant personally giving you a ride to the dentist’s office, what can you do to make regular dental exams, well, unforgettable? Here are 5 ways to remember to go to your next dental exam.

  1. Make the appointment ahead while you wait. Before you start scrolling through Pinterest in the lobby, schedule your next 6-month checkup with the receptionist, and put it in your phone’s calendar then and there. Enable an event alert for the day before, too.
  2. Time it with other events that are 6 months apart. When it is time to change to Daylight Saving Time or Standard Time, use it as a reminder to go to your dentist. You could try timing it with holidays like Independence Day and Christmastime or Easter and Halloween. Some kids will probably need an appointment right after Halloween anyway!
  3. Write it down! Get the appointment process started by phone or our convenient online scheduling request. When our staff responds, put the appointment on a calendar that you see every day–the one on your desk at work, the family calendar in the kitchen,–somewhere so you are not surprised.
  4. Ask someone to call and remind you. Ask someone who calls and talks often to remind you about your next dental exam. Your mother, best friend, or gym buddy will be happy to help you keep up with good health habits.
