Preparing for Summer

Time flies, doesn’t it?

It seems like Christmas was only a few weeks ago, but now we’re right on the cusp of summer.

As the days and nights heat up, we have to plan out our activities in advance– otherwise summer’s combination of endless options and real world obligations can become overwhelming.

This is especially true if you have school-age children.

Planning and Activities

Though summer is a carefree time for most students, it’s not always a carefree time for their parents.

While your kids get to play in the sun and catch up on their reading, you’re still working.

It’s best to plan out a few summer activities for your kids before the summer begins. Many summer camps and other activities fill up before summer begins, so it’s best not to wait too long.

Here are a few suggestions:

  • The Bedford YMCA has a variety of camps, including day camps, overnight camps, equestrian camps, leadership camps, and outdoor education.
  • The Boys Ranch Activity Center has day camps all month for children between the ages of 6-12. These camps provide a relaxed learning environment, and kids will also get to enjoy swimming at Bedford Splash and finding some new favorite authors at the Bedford Public Library. More info here.
  • The Bedford Public Library has a variety of classes and activities most every day of the week. Most of the classes and activities are free, and they range from language classes, movie screenings, video and board games, book clubs, and more. Full calendar here.

Aside from finding new summer activities for your kids, you’ll want to schedule their dental and physician appointments, as well.

You’ll also need to book your own dental appointments.

Extended Hours

For our part, we do our level best to make it easy for you to book an appointment.

During the summer, we’re open early in the morning, as well as later at night for your convenience.

Our summer hours:

  • Mon – 7am-3pm
  • Tue – 7am-3pm
  • Wed – 9am-6pm
  • Thu – 7am-3pm

We want you and your family to have an incredible and care free summer. Making a dental appointment shouldn’t cause any additional stress in your life, so we strive to make our hours work for you.

If you haven’t scheduled your appointments, now is a great time to do so. Combined with our versatile hours, early planning should make it easy to come in and see us.

We’re looking forward to the summer, and we’re looking forward to seeing you.
