We parents are well aware of the importance of physical and dental check ups for our kids who are getting ready to go back to middle or high school but those appointments are just as important for our kids who are college bound.

Getting ready to send a son or daughter off to college for the first time can stressful for everyone involved, some may even describe it as traumatic.  For the student it may well be the first experience he has had in leaving home for any significant length of time. That can cause a sense of excitement and nervousness at the same time and even though you as his parent are going through your own feelings of anxiety you will want to do everything possible to make the transition easy for him.

Parents will enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they are sending their teenager off with a clean bill of health from the pediatric dental home that he has been going to for so many years.  The only thing left to do is to make sure he has access to a dental professional in the college town where he will soon be living.  Sure, he will be home for holidays when he can see his regular dentist for routine exams, x-rays and cleanings, but you never know when an emergency situation may arise.
