As part of the regular school preventive programs, the Public Health Dental Hygienist employed by the North Carolina Oral Health Section, Division of Public Health, will conduct dental screenings for all Kindergarten and Pre-K students. Students in other grades will be screened by the dental hygienist upon request by the school nurse. The screenings will be conducted using non-latex gloves, a flashlight, and a tongue depressor. A letter will be sent home to the parent(s) or guardian(s) of each child with findings.
Parents who do not wish to have their child screened must send a written note to the child’s teacher prior to the screening.
