How will this work in your school?
We will obtain the number of children enrolled in the school by grade and by teacher. This is usually obtained by the school list.
We then prepare packets, in appropriate languages, to go home in the child’s backpack. The packet includes an introductory letter, medical history and informed consent form. The packets go home with the children at the beginning of the school year. However, we will work with the school to determine the best method for distributing the packets.
We will schedule the appropriate number of days to visit the school based on the number of children enrolled. Approximately one week before our scheduled visit, the packets are collected and reviewed by Polished LLC Health Care for completion. We will contact the parent if there is any more information we need from them.
On the day of the visit, a team of licensed dental professionals will arrive at the school with all necessary supplies and equipment. In addition, we have a patient care coordinator who will coordinate the appropriate times for the children to be seen.
The child will never be out of the classroom for more than 30 minutes. The child will receive a dental exam, cleaning, fluoride, sealants, health education, a health report for their parents, and a toothbrush and toothpaste. At the end of each day, the school nurse is notified of any urgent dental care issues and is also provided with a copy of each child’s oral health report.
After all of the enrolled children have been seen we will remove all of the equipment, and restore the room used to its original condition.
