An important message from Maryjane Puffer, Executive Director, Los Angeles Trust for Children’s Health.

Manchester Avenue Elementary,

Very flexible with our special needs students!

Margie Rossander, RN, School Nurse Canterbury Elementary

The team was excellent with the kids, and they met and exceeded my expectations by doing everything they promised. The teachers also agree that this is a valuable service that we should continue to offer. We’re looking forward to making this a permanent program and growing it in the future.

Dan Goetz, RN, Nurse

We love having you come to our school. Your staff is great!

We have worked with the staff for several years now, and have always been pleased with the service and professionalism displayed. I hope we can keep them for many years to come.

LaTonya Maxwell, Family Support Counselor

Our Carnell School Family truly appreciated the dental services that you provide to our scholars here at school. Your team works in harmony getting the children screened and then providing the needed services. We hope to continue seeing Mobile Dentists here at Carnell Elementary in the years to come.

Vanessa Faine, School Nurse

I’d like to compliment all of your dental team for the excellent service they provided to our kids. Thank you!

Juliana Reyes, Family Resource Coordinator Graves County Central Elementary School

We were very impressed with the organization and efficiency of the dental program. What a great service! Having programs such as these provides great benefits and service to our students and is very much appreciated!

Bridget C. Lucardie, MSN, RN, School Nurse

Working with the staff at the Mobile Dentists office was very easy. They were very accommodating when choosing a visit date and were very efficient while processing the students’ permission forms. The staff from the Little Smiles New Jersey program that came to Mastery McGraw Elementary School were wonderful. They were prompt with their arrival and were very professional and friendly with the students and staff at our school. They saw 22 students at the visit and each student benefited from the work the dentist and dental hygienist did on their teeth. We have already scheduled our next visit for the fall and cannot wait to have the mobile dentists back at McGraw to see and help more of our students. Thank you!

Chelsea Trach RN, BSN, School Nurse

What a great program! I would encourage all schools, especially elementary schools, to try it out!

Megan Bounds, RN, Director of Health Services Lima-Brighton Elementary School

Great on-site team, professional, timely, and ready to assist the audience. Wonderful suggestions offered for next year’s event. Thank you again for providing screenings to the children of our participants; we greatly appreciated you joining us!

This was our first visit from the Smile Programs team and we were extremely pleased with the services we received. The team was on time, professional, patient, and kind with our children. I am looking forward to our 6 month follow up and hope that our participation will continue to increase.

Wendy Adams, LPN, Health Services Coordinator

This dental program runs very independently, with little assistance from school staff. It provides a great service for our students.

Patti Oester, Administrative Assistant Flanagan Grade School

This program is excellent, all schools should participate. The kids were very excited and some mentioned that the visit to the dentist is not as scary as they thought. Your staff is awesome and caring, and our students were very happy.

Zoraida Olivo, Operations Manager

The staff were very efficient and organized, and the program ran smoothly.

Saundra L Davis, RN, School Nurse

Our students have special needs and the dental team was very attentive while caring for their needs. They were simply awesome!

Anna Calhoun, Practical Nurse SPEED School

Your staff was really kid friendly! For some children this was their first experience with the dentist and the Smile Pennsylvania dental team really gave our children excellent dental services. Stephen Girard Elementary School in Philadelphia looks forward to your visits in the future.

Andrea McCoy, CSN, BSN, MHed, School Nurse

Dental staff were helpful and pleasant! The office staff remarked about how self sufficient you all were in gathering the necessary students and contacting parents! Thank you!

Jessica G., District Nurse

The Big Smiles dental services were excellent. The dental team worked very efficiently and diligently when providing services to our students. I was impressed with the services provided to students on the spot in the school setting.

Remona C. Sands, Family Resource Center Coordinator

This is such a wonderful program…the children ask frequently when the dentist is coming back! We are such a rural area that the closest dental facility that accepts some insurance programs is 90 minutes away. That means a full day of missed work for the parent, a full day of missed school for the student, and a very long drive. Thank you so much!

Susan O’Bier, RN Northumberland Elementary School

I have worked with Smile Programs for several years now and can’t say enough good about your program.

Carol Halpin, School Nurse

Smile Illinois has been visiting AFL for a number of years now. It gives our students a great opportunity for a dental check up and cleaning. The dental staff are very helpful and professional. Thank you for coming!

Gretchen Hogan, RN, School Nurse

Excellent service! Thank You!

Kathleen Perry, RN, School Nurse

Excellent service for parents; no clinic visits, no time off from their jobs. For the students; great dental care. Thanks a lot Little Smiles New Jersey!

Extremely friendly staff, and the students loved their toothbrushes!

Susan Avery, Principal Braceville Elementary School

Friendly staff and very flexible. Thank you for helping our students.

Patty Skinner, School Nurse Trimble High School

The team is always efficient and caring. They are good with the students, especially the ones who have some anxiety. They are attentive to detail and I love having them come to the school.

Janelle Burnett, School Nurse

The dentists and dental hygienists are always friendly and very patient with the students. They give the kids positive feedback on their behavior during the exam and procedures.

Tara Lovejoy, School Social Worker Morley Stanwood Elementary

You all were great! I loved how they comforted each one of the children.

Ann Burries, Director

Dr. Ash and her team have a fabulous rapport with our children, and explain everything at their level so they understand the procedures. No fear or crying at all, and for K-2, that’s saying something! We really love this service and it is much needed in our community. Thank You!

Always great with the students, and a pleasure to have. My school really benefits from this program on our campus.

Ms. Klein, School Nurse

Everyone was wonderful and the dentists were friendly and professional.

Therese Gallagher, Family Nurse Practitioner

The dentist and hygienist did an amazing job! In addition to the usual dental check-up, they did a lot of health teaching as well. They gave each child individualized attention and made sure each child felt good about him or her self, even if they had a cavity! I really liked that! They were sensitive to student needs and very nice to deal with. We can’t wait for them to come again!

Hagit Stone, School Nurse

The dental team has a wealth of expertise in pediatric dentistry and ensures students have a comfortable experience. They eliminate the fear some students may have of going to the dentist. The team also informs me of the most severe cases, so I may follow up with the parents to ensure restorative care is executed.

Sharon Wingfield, Assistant Principal Horace Mann Academy

Excellent service and “bedside manner”. Every person in the dental team was awesome.

Blair, Registered Nurse

Thank you for this much needed service for the students!

Marie Newton, RN, School Nurse

It’s so refreshing to continue to work with such passionate, caring, professionals! The staff are always patient and helpful. They do whatever they can to provide quality dental care to as many students as possible.
