Don’t let those college years negatively affect your smile.
Whether you are a returning student to the University of Pennsylvania or you’re only beginning your college journey, you’ll experience some changes this coming year. These changes may be meeting new people, the freedom of being on your own, and the intensity of studying. Some students don’t realize the sheer amount of late night studying they’ll encounter when they enter college, and with late nights come increased amounts of sugary caffeinated drinks, sugar-filled foods, and a drop in their oral hygiene routine. So how can college students of UPenn keep up those late nights without damaging their smile? By visiting our PDFP campus family dental office at Locust Walk.
4 Reasons PDFP Should Be Your Campus Family Dental Office
- Convenient Location – Location can sometimes factor into the maintenance of a person’s dental health. At Penn Dental Family Practice, we understand the demanding schedules of college students, and we want to make it as easy as possible for them to schedule dental appointments. That’s why our Locust Walk campus dental office offers the convenience of location. It serves as a friendly reminder that their dental health is still important even when they’re away from home.
- Time – According to the American Dental Association, 28.4% of people ages 18-34 don’t see the dentist regularly because they just don’t have the time. With Penn Dental as your campus family dental office, you don’t have to worry about time being a factor. Schedule your appointments before, in between, or after classes. Since the location is so convenient you don’t have to worry too much about your commute time.
- Multiple Specialties – While keeping your regular dental appointments is important to your oral health, our on-campus dental office provides more than general dentistry. At Penn Dental Family Practice, our Locust Walk location provides multiple specialties to care for all your dental health needs. Here are just a few of the dental specialties we have in our office:
- General Dentistry
- Cosmetic Dentistry
- Pediatric Dentistry
- And So Much More
- Financing Options – Another significant reason people don’t go to the dentist is cost. In fact, the ADA says that almost 36% of people avoid seeing the dentist because of cost. As a college student, we understand there you may not have much money to spare, so seeing a dentist might seem like an unnecessary expense. If that’s the case, Penn Dental Family Practice offers financial options with CareCredit, giving you the ability to maintain your beautiful smile.
As a college student, you might think your teeth are healthy enough, but the reality is that pulling those all night study sessions can affect your smile.
