Dental Public Health – The Dental Preventive Clinic

Attention Parent/Guardian: 

The Dental Preventive Clinic will be operating at Cardigan Consolidated School beginning in early January.
Purpose of Dental Clinic
: Screen children to assess risk of oral disease; provide oral health education, topical fluoride, scaling/polishing and sealants, according to your child’s individual needs.
Screening
:  All children will be seen for a two-minute screening to determine their risk of oral disease.  If you do not wish your child to have this dental screening, please notify the school secretary or classroom teacher.  

Consent: After the screening, all children will be given a consent form which will be necessary for you to complete and return before services are provided.  

Fees: There is no cost involved as the preventive services are covered by the Children’s Dental Care Program.  

Contact: If you have any questions about the program, please contact the dental staff at the School or the Dental Public Health Clinic in Charlottetown at 902-368-4918.

 

Further Information:  Please note that only preventive services will be provided and the screening is not a substitute for an annual dental examination.  It is strongly recommended that parents take their children to a dentist for regular examinations and treatment.  The Children’s Dental Care Program assists with the cost of basic dental care delivered in private and public dental offices for children from ages 3 – 17.

Cardigan Book Fair

The book fair will be held in the gym the week of Nov. 4-8th. Parents are invited to attend during parent teacher interviews. Students will be bringing home a flyer and their “wish list” on Tuesday and can purchase books on Wednesday. This is a great opportunity to pick up some Christmas gifts. We hope to see everyone out to support our library fundraiser. If we are able to reach our goal of $1,500 in sales we will earn $750.00 worth of books for our school library. As well, don’t forget to enter our family contest for a chance to win $25.00 worth of books for your family.
