Your Teeth Should Not Be A Casualty
Professionals often don’t have or don’t create enough time to take care of themselves, including their smile. A busy life can force a person to forget about investing in their health. Whether you are working a 9-5 job, running a Start-Up or a Solo-Entrepreneur with five kids; out of the thousand ideas and tasks, you take care of throughout the day. Make sure you create time for your mental and physical health, especially your smile!
Dental Facts and Tips: For Your Busy Professionals
- Make Time for a Checkup: There is no time like the present, are you available tomorrow? See if your dentist has availability, if not book an exam. It is more efficient to invest in preventative care.
- Unpredictable Schedule?: Keep a toothbrush in your car, purse, backpack or office. Whether you love coffee breaks, garlic noodles or hot dogs with extra onions for lunch. It is always refreshing to go back to work with a minty mouth!
- In Case of an Emergency: Save your dentist’s contact info in your cell phone or keep a business card in your wallet. If you think you need to talk to someone, you most likely do. If you are my already my patient in San Diego or Murrieta, make sure you have either one of my numbers. 619-548-4825 or 951-696-8200
- Over Seas Emergency?: Call the Consulate or Embassy and ask their employees for recommendations, this can provide you with an independent option.
