Dental Screening

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Toronto Public Health provides dental programs to children from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8.

To identify 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 fluoride, 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 Toronto Public Health dental staff to assist you in accessing care.

Please be advised that this screening assessment does not replace the dental examination done by a licensed dentist.

If you do not wish you child/ren to be screened please inform the school.

For additional information, please contact 416-392-0988 or visit http://www.toronto.ca/health/dental/children_youth.htm

DENTAL SCREENING WILL TAKE PLACE ON THE FOLLOWING DAYS AT FERN AVE 

OCTOBER 31, NOVEMBER 2, 3, 6,7, 9. 10 AND 13th.

Thank you.
