The Mobile Dentist is an opportunity for students to see a dentist during the school day. If you have dental insurance, that information will be submitted to the company running the program. If you do not have dental insurance, grants are available to help cover the cost of the service.
Mobile Dentist forms were sent home with students on Monday, December 9th. They are due back to classroom teachers by Monday, December 16th.
The Mobile Dentist will be at VFES on February 4th.
Please call the VFES office if you need additional forms or if you have questions.
