Q: My boyfriend hasn’t been to the dentist in more than eight years. He says he doesn’t have any oral health issues and doesn’t need to go. How can I convince him to go for a check-up?A: While you can’t force him to visit, you can let him know that we make it a comfortable experience. Your oral health is an important part of your overall health (see our last question for more information) and a big part of maintaining good oral health is having your teeth cleaned and checked regularly. It’s a preventative industry, meaning it’s better to visit regularly to maintain good health, rather than waiting for a problem to arise. If you want to give him a gentle push, you can send him this link to book an appointment online.
