DENTAL PROGRAM DETAILS
•Services are provided by licensed dentists, licensed hygienists and certified dental assistants. In some cases, dental students may accompany the dental professionals to provide educational and preventive services.
•Students will receive oral health screenings, complete dental exams, cleanings, fluoride treatment, and oral hygiene instructions by the dental provider. Students will also receive x-rays as needed. Dental sealants will be placed as indicated. Following the visit, students will receive a dental report card which will be sent home. This report card will explain the treatment completed. In addition, it will explain if your student needs to be seen for further treatment. After the dental visit, a member of our dental team will be in contact to schedule an appointment at our main dental clinic.
•Some patients may need to be seen for specialty services and will be referred to a dental provider in your community. Referrals are dependent upon the extent of the student’s dental needs as well as the behavior.
•Informed consent indicates your awareness of sufficient information to allow you to make an informed personal choice concerning the patient’s dental treatment. Most patients do not encounter any difficulties with their treatment. If the patient indicates any resistance to the dental procedure, we will discontinue the treatment.
•The Tell-Show-Do technique is often used to gain the cooperation and confidence of the dental patient. The dental provider explains what they are going to do and then shows what they are going to do. The provider makes every effort to be a partner in care with the patient and family, making the dental visit pleasant and informative.
•This dental program is available to all students who DO NOT have a regular dentist. If your student has a dentist, please be sure they continue to see their dentist regularly
