It is now July, and that means that the first half of 2012 is already over! It is time for a mid-year review of New Year’s Resolutions. Your Dakota Dental Apple Valley dentists want to know how you have kept yours so far.
Dakota Dental Family Dentistry encourages you to celebrate your victories and reevaluate the rest. Pull out your list and identify which goals have been accomplished, which ones you are working on, which ones you still want to work on, and which ones are just not significant to you anymore. Then, recognize your victories, eliminate the irrelevancies, and refocus on what is important!
As we discussed in our January 5 dental center blog, resolutions tend to be centered on money, appearance, self-improvement, and relationships. At Dakota Dental, we are here to help you achieve your goals, whether they are New Year’s Resolutions or otherwise.
To save money and improve appearance, it is important to care for your teeth. By maintaining oral care appointments at Dakota Dental in Apple Valley, Minnesota, our dental professionals can help you maintain oral hygiene through regular cleanings and checkups. If a problem is discovered and dental work is needed, we can prevent it from becoming worse and more expensive to treat by providing dental services now. You do not want tooth decay to lead to cavities, crowns, extractions, or dental emergencies! Another key part of good smile care is to continue an at-home regimen of brushing and flossing every day.
Summer time is also a good time of year to evaluate if there are insurance benefits remaining that will be lost at the end of the year. If so, this is a good time to actually move forward with the recommended treatments you have on your to-do list. It is also a good time to plan for money to be set aside in pretax plans for work to be completed in 2013.
If you are due for a cleaning and check up, call us at Dakota Dental. We are happy to help you achieve your goals and keep a beautiful smile. Dakota Dental provides dentistry for kids and adults including general dental services and cosmetic dentistry. Our Dakota Dental office near Apple Valley, MN, is ready to receive your call!
