The University of South Dakota Dental Hygiene Department has a school-based Preventative Dental Program and we're coming to Viborg-Hurley School. USD Dental Hygiene students and faculty will provide FREE dental screenings, fluoride varnish treatments and sealants to children with their parent(s)' permission. In addition, we are able to take x-rays for a fee of $25 and clean your child's teeth for $35. The program is intended to provide care for children who have not seen a dentist in the past 2 years. If you routinely see a dentist, please consult with him/her prior to scheduling with us. This appointment does not replace your routine visit with a dentist as we do not have a dentist on site. With your permission, your child will be seen during school hours at the school in our portable dental office. We would be happy to have your child participate. You will receive information and a phone call from us after your child is seen to let you know if we have any concerns about your child's teeth and to let you know what we did. You'll also be able to give us feedback in a survey.
Permission slips will be getting sent home with elementary and middle school students this week. High school students can pick up a form in the front office.
