Oral Health Screening
Our dental staff conducts annual oral health screening with all Junior and Senior Kindergarten (JK/SK) and Grade 2 children at your child’s school. Depending on the results, students in Grades 4, 6 and/or 8 may also be screened.
Oral health screening involves a brief visual inspection using a sterile mirror and explorer. Latex products are not used. Following screening, a card will be sent home with your child to let you know the results.
During these visits to your child’s school, we also collect data on levels of decay which give us an overall picture of the oral health of children in our community to compare with the province.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Tracey Stevens directly at (705) 743-1000, ext. 280. If Tracey is unavailable, please leave a voice mail message and she will return your call as soon as possible.
