In the school setting, we provide dental screenings that include education, preventive dental services and any necessary referrals that will have a positive effect on the oral health status of your child. An important component of our program is providing referrals to local dentist to establish a dental home and provide early intervention and/or restorative treatment for the child. We are a team dedicated to improving and maintaining your child's oral health in partnership with parents.
Dental sealants are a thin plastic coating painted on the chewing surface of back teeth and they protect the deep grooves from developing cavities. Dental sealants can be placed on your child's teeth at school are are highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your child's chewing teeth.
Good oral health habits, regular dental check-ups by a dentist and community oral health awareness are key components in the prevention of dental disease. These components help children establish the foundation for a lifetime of optimal oral health. We not only provide quality oral health care in the school setting but we provide each child with the tools and education to maintain a healthy smile while at home.
