Highland is hosting Smile Programs...the Mobile Dentists on April 4th & 5th.We have invited the Smile Programs...the mobile dentists to coordinate on-site dental care at our school because we know of how important taking care of your children’s teeth is to keeping them healthy. Best of all, your child can receive dental care at NO COST TO YOU, as Medicaid, CHIP and most other insurances cover 100% of prevention treatment. Tooth decay is the most common chronic and infectious disease among children. In addition, kids with oral disease can suffer with pain and difficulty eating.

The dental team will set up a mini-dental office in our building and provide dental services for all children who return completed forms.

Dental services can be provided to families who need financial assistance, and there are subsidized fees for those who choose to pay for preventive care.

The Smile Programs has been servicing schools, and creating healthy smiles, for over 14 years. All dentists are state licensed and will conduct a complete dental exam.

Signing up your children to see the mobile dental team is an easy way for them to get necessary dental care. If you want your child to see the dentist on “Shine Your Smile Day,” just fill out the, permission slip and return it to the school.

You can learn more about Smile Programs...the mobile dentists by going to mobiledentists.com and watching the short video about the dental care program.
