MESSAGE FROM ORAL HEALTH Dental Screening Information
A registered dental hygienist from the Halton Region Health Department will be visiting your child’s school to conduct dental screening for grade JK, SK and 2. The dental hygienist will wear latex-free gloves and take a quick, non-invasive, look in your child’s mouth using a sterilized dental mirror. A note will be sent home the day of the screening with the results. If your child needs urgent dental treatment, important information will also be mailed to your home. If you wish for your child to be screened who is not enrolled in one of the mentioned grades please call 311 or email email@example.com to request a screening with the Oral Health program. If your child needs dental care and you cannot afford it, please call 311 for information on the Healthy Smiles Ontario program. You do not have to wait for the school visit to request assistance.
