Back to School with a Healthy Smile
Send your child Back to School with a Healthy Smile!
Volunteer dentists will provide free dental screenings to elementary school children throughout the week of September 8–12, 2014.
Since more than 51 million school hours are lost each year because of dental-related illnesses, early detection of tooth decay is vital. Left untreated, dental decay can cause pain, problems with eating and sleeping, and prevent children from focusing in school. A simple dental screening will detect any problems your child might have and will also provide an opportunity for you to evaluate your child’s brushing habits and overall oral hygiene.
Oklahoma dentists will volunteer their time to provide free screenings to elementary school children throughout the week of September 8-12. Each dentist will establish his/her own schedule.
