See your dentistIt may sound self-serving, but Dr. Apa stresses the importance of having your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year and knows a good trick for making time for cleanings and exams in your busy schedule. "Make your dentist appointments [before you leave the office]," he stresses. "That way, you'll be certain to have them on your planner ahead of time."
To help you stay on top of things, many dentists send out postcard (or, even better, email) reminders. And, if you really want to get organized, there's no shortage of smart phone dental apps to help you. For instance, Dentalappointments.com is a free iPhone application that not only has tools for scheduling and confirming appointments but others that let you message your dentist's office staff, pay bills online, research procedures and more. Hi tech? Yes. Helpful? Definitely.
