Life gets hectic for all of us. Between work responsibilities, errands, kids’ extracurricular activities, and squeezing in a bit of downtime, making the time to stay on track with dental check-ups can be tough. And let’s face it: Going to the dentist twice each year for examinations and cleanings is not on most people’s list of fun things to do.

But regardless of how busy your schedule is, it’s important to squeeze in those regular visits to the dentist to stay on top of your oral health and your overall well-being.

Here are some tips to help you make sure you make time for visits with your Yuma, AZ dentist, Dr. Sam Carroll.

1. Schedule Dental Appointments at the Start or End of Your Day

Before you even decide on a dentist, make sure their office hours are accommodating to your schedule, and their location is convenient. It’s much easier to pop in for your dental appointment on the way to or from work or school.

2. Schedule Dental Appointments Far in Advance

If the date is already on your calendar, you can plan your activities around it, so you are less likely to skip it. The best time to make your next check-up appointment is when are already at the dentist; otherwise, it’s easy to forget to call and book yourself a time slot.

3. Keep a To-Do List

Keeping a list of things you need to get done can help keep activities from becoming overwhelming. With a file, you can tackle what needs to do when you need to do it. Planning your time will help ensure you can make some time in your schedule for your twice-each-year dentist check-ups and examinations.

Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I've been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I'm very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.

I had such a wonderful experiance at this office! Switching from another local dentist was the best decision I ever made. Shanel, the hygienist, was absolutely amazing and Dr. Carroll was incredibly down to earth and attentive to any questions or concerns. The whole staff is just awesome and I can't recommend this office enough!

I was terrified of the dentist from past bad experience. My daughter had a traumatic experience at a local dentist as well. We have both started seeing Dr. Carroll and have had the most comfortable, reassuring experience. They are kind, knowledgeable and patient!! Thank you Dr. Carroll and Staff!! Second visit - 2/4/16 - Deep Clean Procedure and a Wisdom tooth extraction - Again, I can't say enough about my visit. The staff from the moment you walk in the door are professional and friendly. My procedure was 99.5% pain free and the extraction was 100% pain free. I was given information every step of the way and was made to feel comfortable at all times. This is an office with compassion, caring and understanding. I highly recommend this practice. I can't say thank you enough for the positive experience and dental work. Thank you!!

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Carroll over the past -I have been with him since he started practice in Yuma. He and his staff have always treated me professionally and respectfully. I say 'had' because I just moved out of state and now I hope to find a new dentist as skilled as Dr. Carroll. My last visit was a highlight for me. He gave me a brand new, much improved smile by replacing my top front six teeth with crowns made by him on site. The change is amazing and I say "thank you Dr. Carroll!"

Sam Carroll , DMD, is knowledgable about all the latest and most effective dental procedures and treatment to make you SMILE... I have seen a caring and gentle approach with the very young patients ( My Grandaughter) and the concern he had with my 90 year old Father. Very comfortable yet professional atmosphere at all times!
