School Smiles is once again providing in-school dental care to students in the Carroll County School District. Similar to last year, School Smiles will be sending a licensed dentist, a licensed dental hygienist and a dental assistant to each school in the district in September. Forms have been sent home with students, but parents may contact any school in the district to access the forms as well.
School Smiles will visit Kathryn Winn on Sept. 5 and 12, Cartmell on Sept. 29, Carroll County Middle School on Sept. 12 and Carroll County High School on Sept. 30.
School Smiles will offer numerous treatments, including, but not limited to, dental exams, X-rays, sealants, cleanings, restorations/fillings, extractions and crowns. For students who need follow-up care, School Smiles representatives will contact parents for scheduling. Follow-up procedures will still be performed at the student’s school.
“Last year went really well,” said Cydney Conley, Family Ties coordinator at Kathryn Winn Primary School. “School Smiles handles everything, and they do a great job. Our parents loved the service last year. Children were able to get professional dental care during the school day, and everything ran smoothly.”
“There were well over 100 students served at the elementary level last year,” Conley said. “We hope to have even more this year.”
All schools in the district will receive the services.
To participate, parents need to fill out the form that is sent home and send it back to school. Extra forms are available at each school.
