Student Health Screenings

FREE DENTAL SCREENING FOR CHILDREN AGE SEVEN AND YOUNGER

Dear Parent/Guardian: We will have free dental screenings by a local Dentist at our elementary schools for children age seven or younger who have not been to a dentist (please see dates by school below). This is a screening only and no treatment will be given. You may already have turned in a form to your school to say that your child has been to a dentist, or that the screening is against your family’s beliefs -- if so, your child will not be screened. Screening results will be sent to you in backpack mail and also go into the student file.


If you wish to opt-out of the screening, please contact your school office. For more information about the screening call Health Services at 503-825-5485.
