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 accesshalton@halton.ca to request a screening with the Oral Health program.
