Pre-K Program

Smile Partners Pre-K program fulfills the state and federal Pre-K dental screening mandate, and services are provided at NO COST to the schools and families. During our visits, children, whose parents consent, are provided with oral health education, dental screenings, fluoride treatments and referral to dentists.


K-12 Program

The first objective is to have a licensed dentist or registered dental hygienist  screen and assess  each child to see if they have the following: no visible decay; visible decay; or urgent dental needs. The students with urgent dental needs are immediately referred to the school nurse with the intent of contacting parents. Smile Partners currently has two part time dentists to provide exams and recommend interim treatment.
