Tooth Tour


Tooth Tour is a mobile dental clinic that will come to your school to provide preventive dental services.  Services provided are cleanings, x-rays, fluoride varnish, exams, and intra-oral pictures.  This program is open to all students and is currently provided at no cost.  A letter is sent home through the school and the parents and families are provided the information about the service that will be provided and they can decide if they would like their child(ren) to participate.  The benefits of Tooth Tour are that participating students will be out of the classroom for a limited amount of time, approximately 30 minutes, and parents will not have to take time off work for children to access this service.  Children are retrieved from their class, often with other classmates to receive their dental exam. The program specializes in giving each child the best experience possible, the needs and abilities of each child are carefully considered.


Children who lack dental care may have long-term oral health problems and miss school days due to dental pain. Good oral health care is critical to a child’s success.  Schools benefit from improved student oral health because it improves attendance and concentration in the classroom due to fewer toothaches.  The role of the school is to:

  • provide a space for the clinic, equipment, and staff
  • distribute information to parents and families
  • allot time and space for dental education one time per year
  • recruit volunteers to help with the clinic
