Does your child need a dental check-up?


The PIEDMONT REGIONAL DENTAL CENTER Smile Time Clinic is excited to be working together with WYES to provide dental services at school.

The next visit is SCHEDULED for the Fall of 2017.  If you need permission form please call WYES at 948-4511 or click on permission form below and print.




Dental CareTips


There are multiple ways to help protect your child from having a cavity. To help reduce their risk and to protect their gums, teach them these few simple steps:
*Brush twice a day with toothpaste that contains fluoride to help remove and protect against plaque build-up
*Floss daily to help remove plaque near your gums
*Try to limit sugary and starchy foods to help minimize tooth decay
*Make sure your child goes to the dentist every 6 months for a                         professional cleaning and check-up.

Facts 
  • Early Childhood cavities are the #1 chronic disease affecting young children.
  • Early childhood cavities are 5 times more common than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever.
  • If a child has a toothache, he/she may not be as focused in class.
