Dental Care: How To Organize And Categorize The Details

You might be able to form your own organizational system and your own categories that work best for you as you’re making an effort to streamline your dental care. While each person works best with his or her own system, we would love to get you started with a simple way to approach everything you need to focus on for your smile. Instead of feeling like you’ve got a million things going on at once, setting up some categories and checking off the details as you go will help quite a lot.

Category 1: Your Preventive Visits

First, remember that your preventive dental care visits can remain in a category of their own. Regardless of what’s happening with your oral health or your care at home, you always need visits. You’ll need to schedule them two times a year. In an ideal world, you’ll schedule them about six months apart from one another.

Category 2: Any Additional Visits

Now, if you’re thinking about cosmetic care, you need restorative care, or something else comes up, you can categorize that under your additional visits. It has no bearing on your prevention (which must always continue). Give us a call to schedule anything you need when you need it.

Category 3: Your Dental Hygiene Routine

Your dental care at home includes dental hygiene. To avoid getting overwhelmed, keep the details of the routine itself separate from your shopping list. Write out the steps, set reminders, or do whatever you need to do to keep the sessions going successfully (remember, twice a day brushing, once a day flossing, every single day).

Category 4: The Products You Need To Purchase

About that shopping list: Keep it going by adding the dental care products you will need soon, so you remember to pick up toothbrushes, dental floss, and toothpaste before they run out.
