The Old College Try – Getting Kids to the Dentist

Most kids start new routines at college. Trying new things is part of the experience, but studying late and eating junk food may jeopardize already established oral health habits like brushing, flossing and visiting the dentist regularly. In fact, more than a third of adults dont schedule regular cleanings.1 Regular dental checkups are important, especially for college-aged students who may survive mostly on pizza and soda. Getting regular dental checkups can help ensure that oral health problems are taken care of before they become more serious and expensive. So whats a parent to do? While you wont be at college to make sure your kid sticks to a good oral health routine, you can lend a hand by scheduling your childs dental appointments.

  • Convenience and ease are important for busy kids, so try scheduling appointments over breaks or long weekends at home.
  • If your kid isnt home often or attends an out-of-state school, it may be easiest to find a new dentist in his or her college town. Delta Dentals Find a Dentist tool at deltadental.com and on our mobile app can help you and your child find a great new dentist.
  • Keep in mind that as long as you have a dental plan that covers dependents, your kid can take advantage of your benefits up to age 26. If not, make sure to add your child during your plans open enrollment period.
