It’s less than three weeks until Christmas. If you’re like us, you’ve been humming holiday tunes for weeks now. One of our favorites is “The 12 Days of Christmas.” Inspired by this song, which dates back to 18th-century England, we’re inviting you to celebrate 12 days of dentistry with us.

If you’d like to fit in a dental cleaning or other service before Christmas, we can likely still fit you into our schedule! Call 1st in Smiles at 972-380-8105.

10th Day of Dentistry: Find a Payment Plan That Works for You

The 10th day in “The 12 Days of Christmas” is 10 lords a-leaping. We know you won’t feel like jumping for joy if you’re worried about how to pay for your dental care. We offer many payment options, including in-house financing for more costly treatments. You can pay 50 percent upfront for your service, and then spread the remaining half over three months.

11th Day of Dentistry: Convenient Extended Hours

Scheduling is more complicated than it should be at some dental practices. Many offices are open only four days a week. Those that offer appointments five days a week are often open only a few hours on one or two of those days. Our office is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday and Thursday. That’s right, that’s 11 hours! We’re also open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

12th Day of Dentistry: A Good Night’s Sleep

In the song, the final day is 12 drummers drumming. Sounds pretty loud, right? Members of your household may feel that way if your snoring makes it difficult for them to get a good night’s sleep. Fortunately, we can stop snoring with a custom-made appliance. It moves your jaw into a position that keeps your airway open while you sleep, so no more snoring!

We hope you found our 12 days of dentistry useful. To ask us about anything you read or to make an appointment, call us at 972-380-8105.
