Smile Programs- the mobile dentists
Great news! Our school has partnered with Smile Pennsylvania to offer in-school dental care. CLICK HERE to sign up your child today.
Even better, dental care is usually at no cost to you. All insurance is accepted including Medicaid and PA CHIP. A low cost self-pay option is available for those without insurance.
Convenient and comfortable
Our in-school dental program saves you time and provides a safe and comfortable place for your child to receive gentle dental care from licensed local professionals. Dental care includes a complete dental exam, x-rays, cleaning, fluoride and sealants when necessary, and in some cases, restorative care such as fillings.
Dental care for a healthy life
Children who see a dentist regularly may have fewer health issues like:
- Early tooth loss due to dental decay
