Nurses Notes

GTE Parents/Guardians:

GTE is proudly hosting again the "BIG SMILES PROGRAM" dental clinic on Wednesday, December 13th and Thursday December 14th for Medicaid or dental insured students.

The Big Smiles Program features local, caring, Missouri licensed dentists and hygienists who come into the schools and provide exams, cleanings, x-rays, fluoride, sealants and even fillings. For those students without Medicaid or private insurance and lacking sufficient funds, the mobile dentists provide generous grant-assistance.

NO CHILD IS EVER TURNED AWAY for lack of resources.

Permission forms are due back to school by Monday, November 6th.
