Preventive Dental Clinic
We welcome the dental clinic team to our school on February 29: Reka Cummings, Janice Burns, Ellen McLean and Morgan Buchanan, Dental Technician. The Dental Preventive Clinic at Parkdale Elementary school starting the week of February 23rd/ 2015.
Purpose of Dental Clinic: Screen children to assess risk of oral disease; provide oral health education, topical fluoride, scaling/polishing and sealants, according to your child’s individual needs.
Screening: All children will be seen for a two-minute screening to determine their risk of oral disease. If you do not wish your child to have this dental screening, please notify the school secretary or classroom teacher.
Consent: After the screening, all children will be given a consent form which will be necessary for you to complete and return before services are provided.
Fees: There is no cost involved as the preventive services are covered by the Children’s Dental Care Program.
Contact: If you have any questions about the program, please contact the dental staff at the School or the Dental Public Health Clinic in Charlottetown at 368-4918.
Further Information: Please note that only preventive services will be provided and the screening is not a substitute for an annual dental examination. It is strongly recommended that parents take their children to a dentist for regular examinations and treatment. The Children’s Dental Care Program assists with the cost of basic dental care delivered in private and public dental offices for children from ages 3 -17.
