The University of South Dakota Dental Hygiene Department has a School-based Preventive Dental Program and they are coming to the Viborg-Hurley Schools on March 26th and 27th. 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, they 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 them.
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.
The permission form will be sent home with elementary students tonight or it can also be downloaded from our website by clicking on the link below.
Please return permission slips to the school office by Monday, March 25th.
