“DENTAL SAFARI COMPANY”
Parkview Jr. High School
December 15, 2017
Unit 20 School District in Lawrenceville, IL will be hosting Dental Safari Mobile Dentist.
We have invited the Mobile Dentist to bring its preventive dental care program to our schools because we know how important good oral health is to our students’ overall general health which ultimately influences their education.
Each student seen by Dental Safari receives the same professional dental care as a standard fixed-location dental office. Often, access to dental care is limited in rural communities. Dental Safari solves this problem by bringing their office to our schools.
Mobile Dentists will set up a mini-dental office in our buildings and can provide dental examinations, cleanings, fluoride treatment and sealants (if needed) for all children who return completed forms. Additionally, if urgent care needs are present, the student may be treated in a mobile dental unit on-site in the school parking lot.
Dental Safari services are available to all kids whether they; are on the state medical card, qualify for free or reduced lunch, have private insurance or pay by cash. No child is ever turned away because of financial need.
Signing your child up to see the Mobile Dental team is an easy way to receive necessary preventive dental care. Dental exam forms required by the State of Illinois for Kindergarten, 2nd grade and 6th graders will be completed at the time of exam.
An application to see the dental team may be obtained, completed and returned to your child’s school. For more information on the company, or to download additional forms, parents may visit: www.DentalSafariCompany.com. Or call 943-6161 for more information.
