Summer is officially here! The kids are out of school, temperatures are sweltering, and your calendar is filled with picnics, golf outings, and conferences. As your members continue to take advantage of this idyllic time of year, there is a good chance they are also forgetting to take care of their teeth.
Encouraging and reminding your members to practice proper preventive care can go a long way. Not only will it help them keep that healthy smile, but it will also prevent painful and expensive dental work. Keeping your dental routine on track is crucial and it is as simple as following a few simple tips and tricks. Healthplex isn’t just about providing affordable dental plans anymore – they are making it their mission to educate everyone on proper preventive care techniques.
It’s as simple as making sure you’re brushing twice and day for two minutes and flossing after every meal. Just enjoyed a great barbeque? Use a soft dental string instead of the traditional wooden toothpicks which can pierce the gums, allowing bacteria to get in. Playing a round of golf? Increasing your water intake not only quenches your thirst, but it will also reduce heatstroke and keep your mouth happy.
Summer only lasts a mere 93 days. Don’t ruin your summer fun with unexpected dental ailments or emergencies. Take the pledge to brush twice a day, floss after every meal, and to drink more water! Healthplex is making it easy for you to remind your members that preventive care is easy and doable. Download the Preventive Care flyer and share it at your next picnic, golf outing, or meeting.
