Smiles – Our Oral Health Prevention Program
We provide the following:
Since our oral health program started in 2015, our dental
team has provided more than 1,700 dental health assessments and cleaning to
students of Clark county. In addition,
our dental team placed over 1,700 dental sealants.
order for a student to be seen by our Bright Smiles team a parent or guardian
must complete our consent form. Our licensed
public health dental hygienist examines each student’s teeth and provides a
dental cleaning. A fluoride varnish is
also applied to the teeth. Then, with
the help of the dental assistant, the dental hygienist places sealants if
needed on permanent molars.
Our dental program strives to make sure children are seen
by a regular dentist. Each child seen
receives a dental report card. If
possible decay is found parents receive a follow up phone call to try to ensure
that child is seen by a dentist.
