Smiles Program

Smile Programs…the Mobile Dentists can provide both preventative and restorative care for your child. Preventive care consists of a complete dental examination (cleaning, x-rays, and a fluoride treatment).  Restorative care may include fillings, extractions of infected baby teeth, pulpotomy (treatment of the nerves inside of baby teeth) and/or crowns.  Dental services are paid for through your insurance provider.  Smile Programs can provide free preventative services to families who need financial assistance or subsidized fees for those who qualify.  Contact the district nurse for additional information.   Currently we offer this service in North, West, East, and Midview Middle School.
