Dentist Availability Makes a Big Difference for You or Your Kids

A road sign with an arrow pointed ahead has the label of availability, meaning availability leads to success.We just don’t have enough time to get everything done. 

According to a study from the American Dental Association, one of the biggest reasons adults don’t visit a dentist is because they don’t have time to get there. People of all ages find it tough to find time to get to a dentist, especially those 18-49. This reason is also true for people across almost every income bracket and insurance type. 

If finding time to get to the dentist is tough for so many people, why does the problem exist? Let’s take a look at the problem then consider how Signature Smiles Dental solves that problem. 

The Problem with Most Dental Office Hours

There is a common problem with many dentist’s offices. This problem is not unique to dentistry but shared by most doctors and even professional businesses. The problem is that most dentists, most people, work from 9 in the morning until 5 at night. 

This setup is great for everyone getting home at the same time, but it is not great for people who need to take care of errands for themselves or their families. 

With you working during those same hours as when most businesses operate, 

  • When are you supposed to be seen by the dentist? 
  • Should you sacrifice your precious vacation time? 
  • What about your kids? 
  • Should they have to miss classes?
  • Should they skip practices, rehearsals, or meetings after school?

We say no, you and your family should not have to sacrifice your responsibilities to meet your dental needs.
