When dropping off your students, if you need to park, please park in spots on the outside perimeter of the school.

Check out: Skippy- School-based Dental Program

Hello families,

In partnership with your child's school, Tri-County Health Network (TCHNetwork) is pleased to offer Skippy, a school based dental program providing comprehensive oral healthcare to your child at no out of pocket cost to you. Through Skippy we bring dental care to your children so they can spend more time in the classroom and less time traveling to a dentist!

The Skippy dental team provides the following preventive care:

• Dental Exam

• X-Rays

• Fluoride treatment

• Protective Sealants

• Cleaning

• Education to your children about how to brush and floss

• Free toothbrush, toothpaste and floss

• If needed, primary restorative care: in the form of Interim Temporary Restorations (ITR) and Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF)

This convenient dental visit takes about 30-45 minutes and gets your child back in the classroom quickly.

Telluride Elementary School clinic will begin on Thursday, March 23, 24 and 27, 30 & 31.

(We will be at TIS/TMS/THS beginning on Thursday, March 9, Friday, March 10, Monday, March 13. As well as March 16 & 17, 20.)

If you would like to sign your child up, please fill out the consent form by going to https://tchnetwork.org/skippy-consent/ or you may pick up paper form at your child’s school. This consent is valid for the entire school year, both fall and spring semesters, unless revoked by a parent or guardian. Remember, if you signed up for the fall you are automatically enrolled for the spring semester. For questions, please email dental-coord@tchnetwork.org.

Skippy is offered at no out-of-pocket costs to all families. If you have dental insurance, we will bill for services just like other dental offices. TCHNetwork offers health insurance enrollment assistance if you need insurance.

We hope to see your child this Spring!
