Brush. Brush. Smile!® is coming to Pequea Elementary School this FALL!
Since its debut in fall 2004, Brush. Brush. Smile!® has provided over $2.5 million worth of free dental care and oral health education to more than 16,000 children in all 16 Lancaster County school districts.
The most visible component of the program are the two 40-foot mobile dental clinics, also known as the “Brush Brush Buses”. Each “Bus” offers all of the amenities of the most modern dental office, including a full-time dental team complete with dentist, dental hygienist and two dental assistants. Once onboard, qualified children receive a full range of free dental care including exams, x-rays, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, extractions and fillings. Designed with a welcoming, warm environment for children in mind, every visit to the Brush Brush Bus promises to be positive one.
The Brush Brush Bus is scheduled to visit Pequea Elementary School in late October 2010. Students who will be eligible to receive care are students who:
*Currently enrolled in PA Medicaid Plan ( Students on CHIP do not qualify)
*Meet income guidelines and be without dental insurance
Students who have seen a dentist for a cleaning in the last 6 months do not qualify.
PLEASE NOTE that an application will be sent home to every student in grades kindergarten through 6th grade around September 24, 2010.
Please complete the application if you want your child to be seen. Applications should be mailed directly to Brush. Brush. Smile. in the envelope provided.
Look for more information to come!!!
