You know the feeling. You get to the place you’ve been headed for what feels like months: It’s your exciting holiday destination! You get settled in, you spend hours enjoying yourself, you head back to your room, you’re tired, you open your suitcase, and there is something missing. You just want to go to sleep but you really need your … (fill in the blank here). From our perspective, of course, as your Columbia, TN dental team, one of the biggest mistakes you can make is to leave oral health related items behind! Let us ensure this doesn’t happen with some easy travel list tips.
Write One Out!
First, you need to know that you need a travel list. This doesn’t mean a mental list that you keep going because you are completely convinced you won’t forget anything. This is why people have been writing lists out for eras! To ensure you arrive at your destination with everything you could possible need for your oral health by your side, write it all out. It can be in your phone, on a paper-and-pen list, etc. We suggest whatever will work best for you.
Check It Again!
Perhaps you pack the night before you leave, you check your list, and you think to yourself, “Well, I will brush my teeth in the morning and then I’ll put my oral health products into my suitcase and I’ll be done.” Think again! You will need to re-check your list in the morning. Otherwise, you might get up, brush your teeth, zip your suitcase, close your other travel bags, and accidentally forget to pack your dental hygiene items that will still be sitting on your sink when you lock the front door and head to the airport.
Bring It All
Take a very mindful look at what you use for your oral health every day. Of course, no matter what, you will need your dental hygiene products. However, don’t overlook the other stuff, too: Do you have a retainer? A denture? A TMJ mouthguard? Put that on your list, too, so you show up with absolutely everything your smile needs.
