Oral Health Screenings

Our registered dental hygienists visit elementary schools and provide a quick check of students’ teeth. They let parents/guardians know if they see any problems, such as large cavities, in the child’s mouth. These screenings do not replace an exam by a dentist.

Do you know a child who may need help with dental care? For more information about our dental programs see our Dental and Oral Health page or call our Dental Line at 1-800-265-7293 ext. 2661.

Fluoride varnish

We provide free fluoride varnish applications at select schools. Fluoride varnish is a protective coating that helps to make teeth strong and prevent cavities.

Parents of children at these schools can print off a Fluoride Varnish Consent form (PDF, 4 pages, 124 KB) to take part in this free program.
