A Lesson In Oral Hygiene

This arrangement at Swansfield Elementary caught our eye when we saw it in an e-mail to parents.

Swansfield Elementary school is again working with the Chase Brexton Dental Clinic to provide health education and free oral screenings, fluoride treatments, and sealants to students in grades Kindergarten through Second.

The dates for these services will be Monday, May 10th which will be the educational segment that all students in these grades will receive. The actual screening, fluoride and sealant (if needed) segment will be on Monday, May 17th. A consent form will be sent home with students in these grades soon. You must sign the consent form and return it to the school health room in order for your child to receive the services.

All consent forms need to be returned to school by Wednesday, May 5th. If oral health concerns are identified, Chase Brexton may be able to help in providing follow up dental services as needed. Please call the school health room if you have any questions about this program.
