For Our Forgetful Patients: How To Create Reminders!

You may often wonder how on earth you are supposed to remind yourself of dental care details when you are already forgetful in the first place. It’s not as though you want to forget to brush your teeth or to set a timer to make sure your brushing is complete. It’s not as though you hope you’ll forget to call us to schedule checkups and cleanings. It just happens. Then, upon reflection, you wonder what you could have done to remember. Good news: You are not alone! You have our Grand Prairie, TX team on your side, helping you set reminders in the moment, so the future “you” receives them.

Make Them Handwritten

One very easy way to give yourself reminders, so you remember everything under the sun related to your dental care needs? Write them down! The way you choose to do this is all based on what really works for your personality, so spend a little time reflecting on the proper choice for your needs. For instance, if you’re someone who keeps and checks lists on a regular basis, then include dental checkups and cleanings, hygiene products, and anything else on that list. Or, write down important notes on your calendar that you’re sure to check! For some very in-your-face help, use a sticky note and place it in a very obvious location!

Use Your Phone Or Other Technology

Not super into leaving a paper trail for yourself but you are more than happy to engage in leaving reminders for yourself, so you don’t fall behind on dental care? No problem. Now, move on from pen and paper and instead, consider relying instead on technology. We remind you that you can easily set alarms, alerts, and reminders for yourself on your phone. You can also rely on other forms of technology, whether it’s your computer, tablet, or anything else you use on a regular basis, so you’ll be sure to check it and actually receive that notification!

Rely On The Buddy System

Do you and your spouse tend to schedule dental care at the same time? Maybe you have a friend or relative who is very organized and is always happy to help you remember important things. If this is the case, ask for some reminders!

Remind Yourself To Schedule Care

Remember that if you’re a forgetful sort of an individual, it’s to your advantage to come up with a system of reminders that will work for you. Once you have it in place, remind yourself to see us twice every year! Set up an appointment in Grand Prairie, TX by contacting your dentist at Pecan Tree Dental to schedule a visit at (972) 262-5111.
