The Dental Public Health Preventive Clinic will be held at Donagh Regional school in September.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.
Graduates: Any students who have graduated from Donagh and attending Stonepark Intermediate can still access Preventative Dental Services at our Dental Public Health Main Clinic in Charlottetown. Please call 368-4918 for information. Birchwood Intermediate has a school dental clinic in the spring.
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.
