Maintaining Dental Routines during COVID-19

It is a difficult time for most families right now. Many people (our dental office included) has lost a significant amount of work, which could result in lost pay. On the other hand, some essential workers in health care, retail, and logistics might be experiencing a surge of work at a time where they’re not sure they’re safe. It is a truly a unique and unpredictable point in global history.

We certainly don’t want to overload you with even more stress as the corona virus changes our daily lives. Self-care is very important not only for children, but the families who take care of them. That’s why we offer these quick, easy solutions for maintaining your child’s dental health during this time:

  • Continue brushing at least twice a day. Maintaining a morning and evening brushing routine will help keep a semblance of normalcy in your kids’ lives.
  • Floss once a day. Choose either the morning or night routine and floss beforehand.
  • Eat healthy and exercise where possible. Don’t worry about a rigorous diet or a strenuous workout routine, but small things like snacking on fruits and vegetables where possible and going on a long walk while keeping six-feet away from others will improve your overall well-being.
  • Call our office if you have a dental emergency. Our phone number remains open: (520) 544-8522. We may not be open for routine and optional visits, but we can certainly help if your child needs us immediately.

As your child’s pediatric dentist in Tucson, we want to keep your child’s smile healthy.  If you have any questions for our office, feel free to call us at (520) 544-8522.
