Get Your Teeth ‘Back-to-School’ Ready

Back to school

Regardless of the age of your child, routine dental visits and proper dental hygiene are critical. As your children head back to school this month, we encourage you to use this as a time to re-establish strong dental habits. The summer months can be relaxing and lazy, and it is common for both parents and kids to become lax on their dental care routine. Now that you have a school schedule to follow, it is important to incorporate strict brushing and flossing habits right from the start.

In addition to revamping dental care at home, it is also a good idea to schedule that dental cleaning and checkup with your family dentist– especially if you have a teenager going off to college who won’t be home often. A routine dental appointment at the start of the school year can also ensure that minor dental problems are caught and treated early – before they cause pain or lead to disruptions for your child during school. For example, a small cavity that is developing can be detected by your dentist long before it produces uncomfortable symptoms, and this is common in children. An older child may need wisdom teeth removal, and this could be a time to do it before you have to take them out of school for the procedure. It is best to let a dentist evaluate your child’s complete oral health before sending them off to school. After all, you want them at their best while receiving education, whether it is kindergarten or college.

Oral hygiene and routine dental visits are not the only components of a healthy smile. It is also important that you are feeding your child the appropriate foods and drinks to protect their teeth and gums. When it comes to “back-to-school” season, this includes providing healthy snacks in their backpack. Try to avoid sugary drinks and sticky sweet snacks such as gummies and raisins, as these can wreak havoc on the health of their teeth over time. Instead, try to incorporate raw fruits and vegetables. Strawberries are known to help whiten teeth and apples and celery can actually help scrub the teeth as they chew. Cheese is also an excellent option since research has shown this dairy product to have cavity-fighting powers.

Ready to schedule that routine dental checkup for your child? Call Mitzi Morris, DMD. We are happy to see your child before they head back to school this year!

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Going to a new dentist can be stressful, but this experience was the BEST I have ever had. Dr. Morris and Dr. Fields are a cut above the rest, and they offer state of the art technology, and an environment that takes the sting out of going to the dentist for sure. Conveniently located in Roswell, the staff is caring, patient-focused, and efficient. I've never smiled so much at a dentist's office! I highly recommend friends and family making their next visit to this dentist. Pain free!!!!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.
