Oral Health

Clinics through our Northeast Oral Health Project provide free dental services to school age children in our area schools who may not have access to dental services. 

With assistance from local school districts, registered dental hygienists, and other contributing agencies, our goal is to improve the oral health of uninsured or underinsured children. This program provides free oral screenings, education, fluoride varnish application and sealants for students with permanent teeth.

FREE services provided to participating schools through our oral health program include:


Oral Health Instruction 
Education on proper brushing & hygiene 

Dental Screening 
A hygienist will evaluate the teeth and soft tissue for decay and other dental needs. This is not intended to replace regular visits to the dentists, but rather to supplement them. Screenings at an early age help children become more comfortable with the 
dentist. 

Fluoride Varnish 
A hygienist will paint fluoride varnish on your child’s teeth to protect them.

Sealants on First Molars 
Sealants are a thin plastic coating placed on permanent molars typically in 2nd grade because that is when they are usually erupted and still do not have decay.
