Preventive Dental Services Available at Blue Devil Health Center!

The Blue Devil School-Based Health Center is hosting its bi-annual dental clinic on December 6, 2013 at the Calais Middle/High School. Screenings, cleanings, fluoride treatments and sealants will be performed in the Health Center clinic by a registered dental hygienist from Downeast Health Services/ Maine Coast Community Dental Clinic. 

Mobile dental services are intended to supplement a student’s regular dental care at their own dentist. With the parents’ permission, reports from the clinic are sent to the regular dentist to ensure continuity of care.

The program is available to all students enrolled in the Blue Devil Health Center.

Consent forms have been mailed home and should be returned by December 2nd to ensure an appointment. Enrollment in the health center is open at any time, so parents should contact the center to enroll their students if they do not receive the consent form. 

Last fall over 35 students participated in this free or very low cost program. Manyparents have been delighted to have an extra cleaning for their children with braces. Forfurther information or to make an appointment, call the health center at 454-8262.
