Arkansas Dentists Say Pandemic Causes Oral Health Concern

“They may have needed a root canal then, but now it’s an extraction,” said Inman. That’s still a concern. Considering what would have been an easy fix, more and more of Inman’s patients now have a bigger problem on hand. Dr. Fulks at Fulks Family Dentistry can say the same.

Inman said business was unusually slow for a while throughout the pandemic, seeing a decline in patient visits. “Some were nervous about coming and you know, we were closed for eight weeks,” said Lacey Inman, registered dental hygienist at Cantrell Dental.

“They weren’t coming in for their 6-month checkups and cleanings,” said Inman. They say it comes as many people have deserted their dental health during the pandemic.

They urge Arkansans to take control of your oral health because letting it go can impact your overall health.

“Not only could that be a result of folks not coming in for treatment, but increased stressed from the last 12 months,” said Dr. Fulks.
