Summertime is fun time in our area, whether your family is grabbing a bite from one of the gourmet food trucks periodically parked along Belmont Avenue in Newtown Square or catching a Bryn Mawr Twilight Concert. But nothing is fun when it hurts to smile, and that's just one of the reasons that summer is a great time to address dental hygiene and cosmetic dentistry needs.
On the family dentistry side of our practice, summer vacation from school makes this season ideal for parents to schedule routine check-ups for kids. Dr. Bellisario advises parents to book dental visits for little people once kids are 2 to 3 years of age, and then every six months after that. Because the sooner that children become friendly and familiar with a dentist, the more likely they will employ lifelong dental hygiene.
Routine check-ups with teeth cleanings and fluoride treatments also are the best insurance against cavities and gum decay.
Whether booking a summer appointment slipped your mind, or a pending vacation means the time is now to ensure that the family is free of dental care problems, please contact The Office of Dr. Bellisario today or call to schedule your visit. We welcome patients from Ardmore, Havertown, Bryn Mawr, Newtown Square and the rest of the Main Line area of Pennsylvania.
