A Mobile Dentist examines the teeth of an ILES student.
The mobile dentists of Smile Care Ohio wrapped up their visits with students at Indian Lake Local Schools recently.  The teams of dentists, dental assistants and x-ray technicians set up at ILMS and ILES for a total of three days this fall. They examined, cleaned and applied sealant to the teeth of 110 students!
The Smile Care Ohio program is offered in schools for any student who has not had his or her teeth cleaned for 6 months. Any student in the district may visit the clinic if parents fill out the forms. Parents have the option of paying a reduced rate or applying for grants to receive the service for free. Statistics show on average in Ohio elementary students without dental care missed 2 days of school due to oral health problems. Students who are identified as having cavities or other dental problems will get a note sent home to their parents with information on follow-up care.  

The Mobile Dentists will be back to examine teeth next school year.
