We provide free dental screenings to children in Cass County schools and the surrounding area. Local dentists, dental hygienists and community members volunteer their time to perform the free dental screenings. We also provide oral health education, oral hygiene supplies and, with parental consent, two free fluoride varnish applications. A majority of these dental screenings are scheduled in February during National Children's Dental Health Month.
We 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 low-income are referred to Cass County Dental Clinic for treatment.
