Dental Screening at Fern

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Toronto Public Health provides dental programs to children from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8.
They will be at Fern from Wednesday, September 24th to Thursday, October 2nd. 

To idenify children with oral health problems, a screening program is offered to students in accordance with the Ontario Ministry of Health requirements for mandatory health programs.  The screening is an assessment by a dental hygienist using sterilized instruments.  The dental hygienist will access the need for topical nuoride, scaling, sealant and any other obvious dental needs.

As a follow up to the screening, only parents whose children are identified as requiring dental services will be notified.  A note to that effect will be sent home with your child/ren for your information and action.  You may also receive a phone call from T.P.H. dental staff to assist you in accessing care.

If you do not wish your child/ren to be screened, please inform the school or contact http://www.toronto.ca/health/dental/children_youth.htm for more information.


Thank you.
Vera
