Mobile Dentist Day (The week of January 8th, 2019) Is Coming!
We had a very successful Shine Your Smile/Mobile Dentist Day during the 2017/2018 school year, and therefore Littlestown Area School District will host Mobile Dentists/Smile Programs during the week of January 8th, 2019. Permission forms will be sent home with students before Thanksgiving break. For those who are not familiar with the program, the Mobile Dentists/Smile Programs team will set up a mini-dental office in our building and can provide dental examinations, cleanings, fluoride treatments, x-rays, and sealants (if necessary) for children who return completed forms.
Mobile Dentists/Smile Programs can provide these services to families who need financial assistance, and it has subsidized fees for those who choose to pay for the preventive care. No child is ever turned away from Mobile Dentists/Smile Programs because of financial need.
The Mobile Dentists/Smile Programs provide dental care for students who do not have access to a dental provider. If your child already has a dentist, you should continue services with that provider. Required permission are necessary prior to the team's arrival. Mobile Dentists/Smile Programs will complete dental exams and paperwork required by state mandated programs, where required.
You can learn more about Mobile Dentists/Smile Programs by going to its website: www.mobiledentists.com and watching the short video about the preventive dental care program.
