4 Reasons to Start the New Year With a Dental Checkup

After a year like 2020, it’s safe to say that most of us are relieved that a new year is finally here. Are you still not sure what your New Year’s resolution should be in 2021? Many people are striving to get healthier or save money. What if we told you there was a way to accomplish both of those goals simply be scheduling a dental checkup early in the year? Here are four reasons why you should start 2021 off on the right foot by book a dental checkup as soon as you can!


January is the easiest time of year to schedule a dental checkup. Why? The few weeks after the holidays are over is one of the slowest times of the year for dental offices. Because your dentist is seeing fewer patients, you’re freer to choose appointment times that work best for you. You’ll also have more one-on-one time to ask your dentist questions.


If you have dental insurance, your benefits most likely reset on January 1st. This means that you have more coverage that you can use for any dental work you weren’t able to get done in 2020. If you suspect that your smile requires multiple treatments, now is the perfect time to visit your dentist. It gives you plenty of time to plan out your treatment plan over the course of the year to help you make the most of your benefits.


Keeping your smile healthy is more about prevention than anything else. Cavities don’t usually hurt in their beginning stages, but your dentist can still detect them at your checkup. That way, you can get them treated before they ruin your day with a toothache. Plus, you might save money by repairing your cavities with fillings rather than waiting for the problem to get worse and require a pricier procedure like a root canal.


If you’re self-conscious about your teeth, you’re not alone. Studies show that 4 out of 5 adults don’t like their smiles. Your dentist is here to change that! In addition to cleanings, cosmetic services can help you make your dream smile a reality. Whether your teeth are too discolored, cracked, gapped, or crooked, your dentist has a treatment that can help boost your confidence in 2021.

Getting a dental checkup as soon as possible in the new year gives you plenty of time to set smile goals for the next twelve months. Make 2021 the year you finally achieve the bright, beautiful smile you deserve!
