*SCHOOL-BASED DENTAL SCREENINGS

With the help of more than 140 volunteers, we provide free dental screenings to children in Cass County and surrounding area schools. Local dentists, dental hygienists and community members are recruited to volunteer at these events. We also provide oral health education, oral hygiene supplies and, with parental consent, two free fluoride varnish applications.

Staff members from our safety net dental clinic, Cass County Dental Clinic, work with each school nurse to help ensure that these children receive the dental services they need. Those who are insured by Missouri Medicaid or who are uninsured and lack acces to dental care are referred to Cass County Dental Clinic for treatment.

The screenings are a part of the Missouri Oral Health Preventive Services Program, a program of the Missouri Department of Health and Seniors Services.
