Dental Sealants Offered to 8th Grade

Dental Sealants Offered to 8th Grade

American Home Finding Association's I-Smile™ @ School program is offering no cost dental services for 8th grade students at Evans Middle School.

The following services may be provided by a dental hygienist:

  • Dental Screening – a simple look in the mouth to check for cavities.
  • Fluoride Varnish – a sticky liquid that coats all teeth to help make them stronger and prevent tooth decay.
  • Dental Sealants – a tooth-colored coating that is painted on the back teeth to protect them from food, germs, and acid that cause tooth decay.
  • Oral Health Education – lessons to help students learn about healthy teeth and mouths.

After the services are provided to your student, a letter will be sent to you with the results. Please note that dental screenings do not replace regular dental check-ups. Your child should visit the dentist at least once a year for a complete exam.

A consent form will be sent home with your student and must be completed and signed by a parent/guardian.  It is very important that the consent form is returned to the school to ensure that your student is able to participate. A link to the form can be found below.
