Schedule an Appointment Before School Starts!

The new school year is around the corner, which makes now a perfect time to schedule your kids for an exam and cleaning at Dr. Johnson Pediatric Dental in Riverton! Here are some things to remember when you schedule your appointment:

1.) Arrive 10-15 min early, your child’s appointment should last 30-60 minutes.

2.) Remember to brush and floss before your appointment! Even though it’s a cleaning, it’s also a good opportunity for the Dr. Johnson to gauge your child’s dental hygiene skill.

3.) Remember to ask any questions at your appointment! This is YOUR time with Dr. Johnson, so take advantage!

4.) Don’t let your kids eat anything after the appointment! Follow the hygienist’s specific instructions.

We look forward to seeing the many families in Riverton who entrust us with their children’s dental care. Call today to schedule an appointment before school starts and ask about getting a picture posted for our no cavity club! Our phone number is 801-253-8866.

Welcoming Summer the Right Way

Today is the longest day of the year and the first day of summer! At Dr. Johnson Pediatrics, we talk to our patients every day about their summer activities and we have compiled a list of the best ways to celebrate summer:

1.) Switch from winter pajamas to summer pajamas–for good! To officially welcome summer, you need to put away your long johns and get on your shorts and t-shirt jammies! No more switching back and forth–embrace summer by wearing your lightweight sleepwear for good!

2.) Stay up Late! It’s the longest day of the year–ring it in by soaking up every hour!

3.) Read a Book Outside: Enjoy the beautiful weather and abundance of natural light by reading a book outside (even better if you can read in a hammock or lounge chair).

4.) Throw a Bonfire : There’s no better way to ring in summer and celebrate the longest day of the year than by inviting over your friends and cooking s’mores and hotdogs over a bonfire.

5.) Set goals for the rest of the year. Because today is the longest day of the year, it’s the perfect time to evaluate your goals for 2017, set some new ones, and begin anew!

At Dr. Johnson Pediatrics, we love celebrating summer with our patients. Whatever you do to celebrate this season, make sure you schedule an appointment with Dr. Johnson before school starts again this fall by calling 801-253-8866.
