Start School Smiling is designed to promote dental health to all students under age seven. Volunteer ADA&C member dentists will provide a free examination, with bitewing X-rays if needed, from September 1 to October 31, 2019.

There is no cost to you to participate in Start School Smiling. Just book an exam with any participating practice, between September 1 to October 31. A list of participating practices will be posted in the summer. Developing good oral health habits early can last a lifetime! And if your child doesn’t have a dentist we’d like to help you find one!

For teachers!
We’ve created an Oral Health Education Program that we want to share with you should you decide to use it in your classroom.

Happy Teeth! helps children ages four through seven develop good oral health habits that can last a lifetime!

The program:

  • Helps children ages four through seven understand the importance of their teeth
  • Provides basic information about keeping teeth clean and healthy
  • Introduces the dentist as a friendly doctor who helps them take care of their teeth
