Black “Plaque” Friday

Black Friday marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season. Many people will be out shopping department stores for the best deals on electronics, toys, clothing, and whatever “door buster” items on their holiday shopping list. This day is the busiest day of the year for shopping malls. It is also a day for eager shoppers to wake up in wee hours in a mad rush to score the best bargains.

Black Friday has often been referred to by dentists as “Plaque Friday”. This is due to the fact that patients are out spending their disposable income on gifts for friends and family without putting money aside for their dental healthcare. Many people will put off overdue dental appointments until the beginning of the year. Breaking out the credit card for dental treatment is not how most people prefer to spend their money this time of year.

The staff at Palm Harbor Premier Dental would like to encourage everyone to get their dental treatment done by the end of the year. Make sure you consider all of your payment options before you neglect to get dental care you need and deserve. Many of our patients have dental insurance plans or money set aside in their health savings accounts. We also accept CareCredit, which allows you to get your dental treatment now and make easy payments over time.

This is a friendly reminder to keep your oral health in check. There is no better time than the present to schedule your next dental visit and spend this holiday season with a beautiful smile. Give us a call at (727) 349-3615. Our friendly staff is ready to assist you in keeping your dental care a priority through the remainder of the year. Remember, your beautiful smile needs to last a lifetime!
