When your kids finish packing up, head to the dorms, and then you realize they’re actually all grown up, one thing that hits you suddenly includes the following question: What about their smile health? Who does what at this point? They’re not actually living 100 percent independent lives, they have never scheduled a dental visit ever, and you can’t still sneak into the bathroom just to see if their toothbrush bristles are wet (not that you would ever do such a thing). Don’t worry. Try a quick quiz and you’ll feel equipped with a ton of oral health solutions.
Quiz Questions: True or False?
- True or False: If your child is heading out of town a considerable distance for college, it’s a wise decision to locate a dentist that they may visit in their new city when necessary.
- True or False: We encourage parents to check on the details of their insurance. It is essential to ensure children in college are still covered by parents’ benefits or to secure new dental coverage.
- True or False: Once your children are in college, it’s no longer appropriate to check in with them about whether they’re brushing and flossing their teeth on a regular basis to promote excellent oral health.
- True. This is a very good idea. While we still suggest bringing your child to see us when they are in town, securing a local dentist for their oral health needs means they have somewhere to go in case they require urgent care.
- True. Remember that your child’s dental care benefits might stop at 18. Double check the details, so your son or daughter can continue receiving professional dental services without fail!
- False. Nobody else is going to ask! Checking in about such details is most certainly to their benefit.
