Smile New York Outreach is an in-school dental program offering critically needed pediatric oral health care in the familiar surroundings of our partner schools. Poor oral health is a leading reason children miss school; in fact, tooth decay is the most common childhood disease, and is five times more common than asthma.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that in-school dental programs are extremely effective at providing care such as sealants, that give kids a great start toward healthy teeth, keeping them in school rather than home with tooth pain.
We’d like to help your students get that healthy start too! Smile New York Outreach has designed an in-school dental care program that is easy for students and parents, with no cost to them and no cost to your school. We use portable technology and bring licensed local dentists and other dental professionals right to your school and your students.
