We pack our to-do lists with at-home responsibilities, work meetings and much-needed social outings. One item that can fall to the wayside in our daily grind: keeping up with our dental care. Then, suddenly, we get a toothache or remember we need a dental checkup. But we’re uncertain about what dentist to see or whose appointment schedule can accommodate us.
Enter CARTI… Renowned for providing the best cancer care in the state, CARTI also has a Dental Clinic available to cancer patients and individuals 18 years and older. CARTI provides teeth cleanings, x-rays and every procedure you would expect from a dental office. Best of all, because CARTI cares for some of the most vulnerable patients, we can rest easy knowing we’re in an environment focused on minimizing our risk of infections.
To maintain good oral hygiene before—and between—our appointments, CARTI’s team recommends these simple tips:
- Brush your teeth at least twice daily with a soft-bristled brush in gentle, circular motions, ideally for two minutes.
- Floss at least once a day—it’s just as important as brushing your teeth.
- Stick with fresh, healthy foods and water instead of sugary or acidic foods and drinks.
- Maintain a consistent dental checkup and teeth cleaning schedule.
Completing our to-do lists can be stressful. But booking our dental appointments doesn’t have to be. Contact the Dental Clinic, open Tuesday-Thursday from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. at CARTI’s main campus in Little Rock, by calling 501-906-3000 or visiting CARTI.com.
