MBS has been selected to participate in the 2016-17 Keep Smiling Vermont Dental Health Survey!
This program is a collaboration of the Vermont Department of Health and the Vermont Agency of Education to assesses the dental health of children in Vermont.
All 3rd grade students at MBS are offered a free dental screening as part of the survey. Families are encouraged to participate, even if they have a family dentist. A questionnaire and opt-out form are being sent home this week, as well as a FAQ sheet about the survey. Please complete the form and return to school-or you can fill out the form online at: http://survey.healthvermont.gov/s3/Smile
How does the survey work? A dental hygienist will look at your child's teeth using a disposable mirror and a new pair of gloves for each child. The screening takes about 1 minute, and the child can stop the screening at any time. No sharp instruments will be used, no dental treatments will be provided, and no x-rays will be taken. Each student who participates will receive a dental goody bag and the results of the screening. This screening does not take the place of a regular dental check-up by your dentist.
If you have questions about the Dental Health Survey program, please contact Robin Miller, Oral Health Director at (802) 863-7272 or email@example.com.
