Why October Is A Great Time To See The Dentist

Come In Today!

If you’ve been putting off a dental visit, October is the perfect time for you to make an appointment with Dr. Barker at Cardinal Family Dentistry.

We provide family and preventive dentistry for patients in Apex, Cary, New Hill, and Holly Springs. If you’ve missed your latest appointment, or you’re looking for a new family dentist, here’s a few reasons you should visit us during October:

You Can Take Advantage Of Your Dental Insurance

Seeing the dentist in October is a great way to make sure that you make the most of your dental insurance plan, for a few reasons.

Most dental insurance plans are based on the calendar year, and your coverage doesn’t roll over. For example, if you have $1,500 of dental coverage and don’t use it this year, it won’t roll over into next year. It will simply be wasted!

By scheduling a dental appointment in October, you can take care of any follow-up procedures, like fillings, root canals, or periodontal cleanings, before the end of the year.

This means that you can meet your deductible, and use more of the “annual maximum” given to you by your dental plan, before it rolls over on the New Year! You’ll save money and get the most out of your dental insurance plan.

You Can Protect Your Teeth (And Your Children's Teeth) From Sweets Season

October signifies that Halloween, Thanksgiving, and winter holidays like Christmas are only a few months away. Whether you (or your kids) are munching on Halloween candy, pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, or Christmas cookies, you’ll most likely be eating more sweets in the next few months than you usually do throughout the year.

It’s important to keep up with routine check-ups to make sure that any tooth decay issues are addressed before they become more severe. In addition, preventive care like dental sealants and fluoride treatments can help you and your kids avoid cavities, even if you do eat plenty of sweets during the holidays.

It's National Dental Hygiene Month!

What better reason to come to the dentist than to celebrate National Dental Hygiene Month? When you come to the dentist, you’ll be able to learn more about the importance of oral care, and get tips that will help you keep your mouth in great shape.

Don’t miss out on the festivities! Celebrate National Dental Hygiene Month by scheduling an appointment with Cardinal Family Dentistry!
