Cold Weather Practices at Tiffany Ridge:

As we approach winter, we would like to share information regarding Tiffany Ridge’s cold weather practices, which are in keeping with the PHSD Parent-Student Handbook (p.39). "On days when the temperature and/or wind chill is above 20 degrees Fahrenheit and the playground is cleared of snow and ice, there will be outdoor recess." Please send coats, gloves, hats, etc. daily with students to ensure they are prepared for outdoor recess any day the temperature or wind chill is above 20 degrees.

Miles of Smiles Dental Program will be at Tiffany Ridge

December 17th - January 17th

Miles of Smiles is a full service dental program that provides FREE dental care to children in the Northland. This free service is made available through private donations and Missouri Mediciad funding. If your child participates in the program, their dental care will be provided on site, in the school, by a Missouri licensed dentist. Whether you have insurance or not, Miles of Smiles provides a full service dental program including cleanings, x-rays, fillings, crowns, pulpotimies and extractions, for free. Follow up appointments are available in our office Monday through Friday, all year long.

You might be surprised at how flexible the income guidelines are. If your annual family income is below $49,200 for a family of four, you will qualify for Miles of Smiles. No co-pays and no deductibles to meet!

Patient registration forms can be completed online from a smart phone, a computer, or you can contact the school and ask to be provided with a paper copy. Please include all of the the necessary information on your child's form, including but not limited to: Health History, Allergies, and any concerns you have. Please remember in order for your child to be seen we will need all three parent signatures signed on the form. Please have the form completed by: December 13th

Please visit our website for more information and to sign your child up online!


Once the dentist has left the school, we are still your dentist. You can call our office and schedule an appointment any time. We hope you will consider us your dental home and visit us on a regular basis. We will return to the school around the same time next year.

Thank you for participating in the Miles of Smiles dental program.
