Brighter Smiles

Southeast District Health Department (SEDHD) and area schools have partnered together to offer the Brighter Smiles program. These visits to area schools to provide optional preventative dental services including a visual oral health screening, fluoride varnish, and dental sealants.  A Registered Public Health Dental Hygienist will complete all services. 

  • All children screened will receive a toothbrush & toothpaste.
  • Screening results will be sent home with each child.
  • All children will receive education on the importance of dental health from a Registered Public Health Dental Hygienist.

Already seeing a dentist twice a year? Great! This program is an extra step in addition to that care to help fight tooth decay.

Fluoride Varnish & Dental Sealants:

The safety of students, school faculty, and health department staff is a priority. Appropriate precautions will be taken to ensure that all individuals are kept safe. Masks and clean gloves are worn for each new student. The screening area will be disinfected after each student.
