Saskatchewan Health Authority Dental Program

 

It is time again for a licensed oral health professional to provide dental screenings for students in Grade 1 and 7 during the 2018-2019 school year. The screening at McDermid Community School is scheduled on November 5th 2018. The previous dental screening was done in 2013-2014. The information collected from the screening will be used to plan and develop preventative program services based on the needs of your community.

A dental screening will include the use of a small flashlight and a sterilized mouth mirror or tongue depressor. After the dental screening is done, a letter will be sent home with your child. This screening does not replace regular check-ups at your dental office.

Grade 1 & 7 students will be bringing home a Dental Screening Information (SHA 0H1) form to be completed and returned at a later date.

Your child will receive an oral heath screening unless you contact us at 306-766-6345.
