According to the Surgeon General, dental care remains the greatest unmet health need among US children. Mount Vernon Schools are happy to continue a long-standing relationship with the Big Smiles In-School Dental Program to help our students access much needed dental services.
Big Smiles was founded more than a decade ago to help children who were unable to access dental care and as a result, often suffered from poor oral hygiene, tooth decay, pain and associated medical problems. Services are delivered directly in the school setting which alleviates the time and transportation burden on parents and provides a safe, secure and often fun environment for the children.
Big Smiles will be in Mount Vernon Schools on the following schedule:
Wednesday (10/12) and Thursday (10/13) @ the Elementary
Friday (10/14) @ the Middle School
Wednesday (10/19) @ Intermediate and High School
Enrollment forms will be sent home with students. To participate and have your child see the dentist at school, please complete and sign the enrollment form and return it to the school with your child. Please contact your child's school if you have questions or do not see a form in the next few days.
