    On Tuesday, February 13 and Thursday, February 15  the Friendly Smiles Program will be offering in-school dental care. If your child does not see a dentist regularly or you would like them to see the in-school dentist, simply fill out a consent form. New forms must be completed each school year.

    Friendly Smiles accepts Medicaid, Commercial Insurance, and Uninsured. There is NO COST to you even if your child is uninsured or not fully covered by commercial insurance.  Uninsured students must qualify for free and reduced lunch to participate in our program. Direct dental services provided to your child while in school is completely FREE

    Having your child seen by the Friendly Smiles Program dentist in school saves you valuable time, as well as less time is taken from your child’s academics. Top quality care is provided by a licensed dentist and hygienist right in the familiar surroundings of your child’s school. Dental care includes a complete exam, x-rays, cleaning, fluoride, sealants, restorative care such as fillings, and when needed baby tooth extractions. 

    By having your child seen regularly by a dentist, you can help reduce the risk of:

    • Dental Decay
    • Early Tooth Loss caused by dental decay
    • Gum Disease
    • Heart Disease

    Simply fill out the Friendly Smiles consent form or the paper form that will be sent home with your student on either Friday, January 12th or Tuesday, January 16th and return it to your school nurse no later than FRIDAY JANUARY 26TH.   

    The form can also be found here: Dental Form
