2024 Dental Exams scheduled for February 27

Submit form by February 20

  • Penn Delco School District has partnered with The Smile Program: My School Dentist to offer in-school dental care each year.  Dental exams are mandated by Pennsylvania for grades K/1, 3, and 7.  This program is available for students in grades K/1, 3 and 7 who have not provided proof of a dental exam within the last year.  If we do not have the required dental information regarding your child, you may qualify for this program.  (Please note we will not turn away any student in any grade who requires a dental exam.)

    Our in-school dental program saves you time and provides a safe and comfortable place for your child to receive gentle dental care from licensed local professionals.  Dental care includes a complete dental exam, x-rays, cleaning, fluoride and sealants when necessary, and in some cases, restorative care such as fillings.  Even better, this dental care is usually at no cost to you.  All insurance is accepted, including Medicaid and CHIP.  For those without insurance, a low-cost self-pay option is available.  
     
    Children who see a dentist regularly may have fewer health issues like

    • Early tooth loss due to dental decay
    • Gum disease
    • Heart disease
    • Impaired speech development

    Dental exams will be held on Tuesday, February 27, 2024.  Students from all elementary schools will be transported by bus to have their exam completed. All parents/guardians are encouraged to be present for the exam and are welcome to transport as well.  Please fill out the dental form below and return to your school by February 20.
