Five Reasons to Get a Back to School Dental Checkup

Filed under: Sage Blog — Tags: , , — Dr. Terry Batliner @ 9:08 pm

In getting ready for a new school year, most parents end up with a long back-to-school list.  While buying school supplies and clothes is something Mom or Dad can do on their own, if you want to get a back to school dental checkup, you will need to schedule it for your child before their schedules fill up with homework, sports and other after school activities.
