Dental Care Tips for Summer Traveling Gainesville, GA

One of the best parts of summer are the trips and vacations you get to take with friends and family. While we fully support your opportunity to kick back and relax for a few days (or weeks) this season, we don’t want your oral health to be compromised in the process. We also don’t want issues within your oral health to jeopardize your vacation. At Gainesville Dental Group, we’ve outlined the following tips to ensure a healthy smile and your summer traveling plans can positively co-exist:

Schedule Your Dental Appointment Before You Go

Are you overdue for a dental cleaning? Do you have a restorative service like a root canal or crown on your treatment plan? We highly recommend that patients get their cleanings and dental work in before they leave for summer vacation. This ensures that dental issues don’t become major (and painful) problems while you are miles away from our office.

Don’t Slack off On Your Dental Hygiene Habits

We get it; “you’re on vacation!” However, while it is okay to let many duties fall by the wayside during vacation, don’t let your teeth cleaning habits be one of them. Vacations tend to include extra sugar indulgences, which makes it even more important to keep up with your brushing and flossing schedule while you are away.

Make Sure Your Smile is “Photo-Ready”

You’ve likely planned for a family photo shoot at the mountains or selfie session with your bestie at the beach. These moments should definitely be captured. But don’t forget to prep your smile before you get in front of the camera. When looking back at your vacation pictures, you’ll be glad you snuck in that teeth whitening session with your dentist before you hit the road!

Where are you headed this summer? At Gainesville Dental Group, we wish our patients a fun, relaxing and safe trip. We also want to do our part in making sure your teeth stay healthy and pain-free while you are away. If you do encounter a dental emergency (and this does happen), please reach out to us so that we can guide you what to do. Call today to learn our openings for dental treatment before your summer vacation begins.

Our Patient Reviews

Bev M.

Very happy with the staff at Gainesville Dental Group. The doctors are caring and experienced. I never am left in the waiting room. The hygienist always ask thorough questions and report to the doctor before the exam, saving me from having to repeat everything. Highly recommend.

Dennis C.

I came to Gainesville Dental Group with a crown that was in bad shape and painful. Dr. Vetter was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and went to great lengths to ensure the treatment to resolve the problem was in my best interest. He and assistant Sarah Riley were very professional yet personable. They worked together seamlessly in a manner that put me at ease and were very focused on fixing the tooth. Any physical discomfort was minimal and both Dr. Vetter and Sarah were encouraging and positive. A very good experience.

I come to Gainesville Dental Group for my routine cleanings and absolutely love it! It’s very clean and I love how up to date they are with digital X-rays and photos of the teeth. I had to have a filling and they were able to point out on the screen where my cavity was on the X-ray. It’s much easier getting the work done when you have an understanding of what the doctor is doing! Dr. Vetter did my filling and the whole procedure was pain free! I can’t say enough good things about this group!

Dr. Gannon and Hannah were great. They talked me thru my procedure and made sure I was comfortable and pain free. The office was friendly and pleasant. My hubby and son have used them and liked them. I've found a new dentist! Thank You GDG.

Since I started my orthodontic treatment fifteen months ago, the staff at Gainesville Dental Group have been exceptional. Dr. Vetter is so kind and energetic and Kim puts you at ease while she works miracles! I am thrilled at my results and that they worked within my timeframe. I gladly recommend The Gainesville Dental Group for a personalized experience. Thank you!

The whole office staff is amazing! Super friendly and helpful. Dr. Gannon has always been very nice and does great work! My husband sees Dr. Vetter and has only good things to say as well. I highly recommend this office!

Lorrie M.

This is by far the best dental group I have been to in a long time. The staff is wonderful and caring. From the front office to the Dentists are a class act. Very kind and explain step by step. High quality work. Don't plan on going anywhere else. My husband has had the same experience. Do yourself a favor and check them out. Tell them Lorrie sent you

Bruce Y.

Great dental visit! Went in for annual cleaning and x-rays. Donna did an awesome job and pointed out a potential issue which she brought up to the doctor who concurred. It was an excellent visit. Thank you to the "team" @ Gainesville Dental Group.
