Oral Health

Research relates poor oral health to decreases in school performance, poor social relationships, and less success later in life. Children experiencing pain are distracted and unable to concentrate on schoolwork. Levy investments in health are intended to help them do better in school. 

School-based oral health services include:

  • Oral screening and examination
  • X-Rays
  • Preventive oral care including cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatments
  • Restorative treatment including fillings or extractions
  • Health education and health promotion
  • Care coordination and referral to help students establish a dental home
  • Linkages and coordination with community organizations
