Get a Fresh Start in 2021

friends celebrating the new year

It’s no secret that 2020 has proven to be one of the most difficult years in a long time, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take a moment to reflect and look back. After all, it’s the most effective way to learn from these tough times and be better prepared for the future.

With 2021 already here, it’s more important than ever to use this reflection to start planning. At Blue Coast Dental, we can’t emphasize enough that getting routine dental appointments done and out of the way is a great way to get started!

This is especially true if you are overdue for a dental appointment or you’ve been putting off a treatment that you know you need. This month, we’d like to explain not only why 2021 should be the year you start prioritizing your oral health, but what you can do to make establishing resolutions around your oral health easy. Our dentists are always here to help you make the most of your benefits and start the new year off right when it comes to your oral health!

Consider Your Oral Care Habits in 2020

New Years Resolutions checklist

It’s fun to celebrate with friends and family every New Year’s Eve. However, it’s also a great opportunity to reflect on how the year went, particularly if you made resolutions. As you reflect, ask yourself if these resolutions focused on your oral health or habits related to your smile. For example:

  • Did you avoid any cavities?
  • Did you visit the dentist at least once every six months?
  • Did you have to avoid gum disease and dental infections?
  • Were you able to make the most of your dental benefits?

Asking yourself these questions is meant to help you establish concrete resolutions moving forward, not make you feel guilty. As your dedicated dentists, we want you to feel confident about your oral health goals and be proud of the ones you did meet.

Acknowledge Your Accomplishments

One you understand the goals you did accomplish, you can start putting your time and energy towards the resolution you’re looking to fulfil. For example, if you’ve perfected your oral care at home and purchased the products you need in order to make it easy to maintain consistent at-home habits, you can focus on goals like setting up your routine checkups in advance and making sure to make the most of your dental benefits. While these habits may seem insignificant at first, they make a huge difference in the long-term (and make it easier to help other family members achieve the same goals.)

2020 Was Unpredictable, Be Prepared in 2021

Blue Coast Dental team

Your dental benefits have likely reset, which means now is the best time to start going over your coverage and ensure your long-term preventive dental needs are being met. For example, you can meet your deductible early, which means your insurance provider will start offering you coverage for your future care, whether it be exams, cleanings, X-rays, dental fillings, crowns, or another service you know that you need. Even going into 2021, many people are still living on Zoom or other video conferencing applications, so why not take the steps to make your smile look the way you’ve always wanted to before things go back to normal?

The dentists of Blue Coast Dental want to make assessing and fulfilling your oral health resolutions simple and straightforward. Want a smile makeover? Need help scheduling your biannual checkups? Our team will be right by your side and ready to serve in 2021, so don’t wait to set up your appointment today!
