Dental Permission forms were sent home at the beginning of the school year. Parents may also sign up their children online at https://www.myschooldentist.com/Default.aspx
We must have a permission form completed in order for your child to be seen by the in-school dentist. Permission forms will be accepted up to the day before the visit on January 30th, 2019.
Our school has partnered with Smile Programs to offer in-school dental care. Best of all, in most cases there is no cost to you if your child is insured with Medicaid or CHIP! Private insurance and affordable self-pay options are also available.
Having your child seen by the in-school dentist saves you valuable time. Top quality care is provided by local, licensed dentists’ right in the familiar surroundings of your child’s school. Dental care includes a complete exam, x-rays, cleaning, fluoride and sealants when needed. Restorative care, such as fillings, may also be provided.
By having your child see the in-school dentist, you can help reduce the risk of:
Early Tooth Loss caused by dental decay
Impaired speech development
