Although our dental team does everything we can to remind you of your dental appointments, there is still a chance you might forget. This puts your smile in danger, especially because dental checkups are vital when preventing gum disease and other dental issues. So, our doctor, Dr. James McAllister, encourages you to do everything you can to remember your appointments, like:

-Set a reminder on your device: All you need to do is enter “dental appointment” into the calendar on your phone, tablet, or laptop. As you do this, set an alarm on the event so it will remind you one hour or one day before your appointment. It’s even better to enter this event into your calendar at the same time you’re in our office scheduling your appointment.

-Schedule your appointment at a time that fits your lifestyle: Sometimes it’s easier to schedule six-month “To-Do” tasks at the same time, like dog vet appointments, landscape chores, and even your children’s dental appointments. If all of these tasks are around the same time, you’ll know it’s time for your appointment when you’re checking off your list. It’s also best to avoid scheduling your appointment at the end of the year if that time tends to get busy for you.
