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

Your dental team is very friendly, hard working and dedicated to helping the children.

Mary Figueroa, Health Assistant Mary Belle McCorkle Academy of Excellence

We are very thankful for your program. We have several students who would not see a dentist if you did not come to our school. Thank you very much!

Gina Berry, Clinic Assistant

I was pleasantly surprised by the comprehensive dental services the Smile Program provided for our students. Services were rendered in a professional manner with few tears and drama. Our students genuinely liked the services and staff. I was most impressed by the manner the staff had with difficult students.

Angela Boone, Family Resource Center Coordinator

This is a very valuable service to the student’s of Carroll County. The staff is very professional and work very well with the school and scheduling. It is a great program. I am so happy to have this available for our students.

Lisa Frost, Head School Health Services Nurse

We appreciate the opportunity to work with the Smile Program. The friendly service the team provides helps to fill the gap in access to oral health care for children under age 5 in our community.

Katrina Harwood, WIC Director, Marion Public Health

It is always a pleasure working with this program. The staff are very friendly and self sufficient. We’re grateful to be able to provide this service to our students who would otherwise possibly go without dental care.

Tanya, School Nurse Bibich Elementary

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

Thank you to the entire dental team for the wonderful service provided to our students. From start to finish everything was professional and organized. This was my first time having the Mobile Dentists at our school, and the feedback received from students, parents, and school staff was extremely positive. We are looking forward to having you back.

Nadine Rickards, School Nurse

The service was excellent, and we want to thank you so much for bringing your program into our school. Your staff did an excellent job working with our nurse and office staff.

Catherine Webb, Office Manager

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

This service was one of the best resources that our school could have used. There are always so many students who don’t have a dentist and the parents don’t know where to go to get help for those students who need dental help. It’s so great that the dental team can come to the school to service the students. The school staff and parents thank Smile Programs so much for coming to help our students.

Natasha Mayweather, RN, School Nurse Holy Family School

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

Thank you for coming and providing your services to ensure the dental requirements and health of our children are met at Head Start!

Valerie Dierckman, Health Specialist II

What a WONDERFUL service for the children in our district. The staff was so friendly and made the children feel safe and comfortable! For many children this was their first time seeing a dentist or having any dental work done and they all did so well, because the dental team was so great. We are looking forward to your return visit.

Jessica Dorsey, BSN, RN, CCRN, CTTS, Southern Local/Miller

Smile New York is a wonderful in-school dental prevention program. Our students were engaged and excited about the dentist visiting. It was beneficial to have so many of our students receive dental health services and walk out with clean and treated teeth. The dental staff was caring, supportive, and professional. Our overall experience was great!

Audra Jimenez, Director of Counseling and Student Support Services

The program is wonderful and the parents and students are very happy with the program. Thank you for doing this!

Joyce Batts, Parent Coordinator P.S. 298

A pleasure to work with your staff! They were very accommodating to our classroom schedules. Dr. Jewell and the dental assistants and hygienist were wonderful with the students. We had a great three days, and we were able to let their parents know if further dental care was needed. Thanks so much!

Marynan Mudd, Family Resource Center Coordinator

Thank you for your services. Unfortunately, some of our children would not receive the dental attention that is needed if it was not for your program.

Vicki Haney, LPN Peters Elementary School

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

Cynthia H. Morgan, Principal Edgemont Primary

Very friendly, efficient staff. They make the children feel comfortable, and they were thorough with the exams and cleanings.

Deb Graham, RN Shelby Hills Early Childhood Center

They did amazing! We had students who refused to open their mouths when they went to the dentist with their family that let the Smile Programs dentist examine their teeth here at the school.

Sarah Dean, School Nurse Franklin Learning Center

This is a very important program for public schools!

Betty Girsch, RN, School Nurse

Your entire staff was excellent, professional, and very pleasant!! It was a joy and an honor to work with them as they provided a valuable service to our students. They were prompt and efficient as we overcame a few challenges. Each one of your staff showed a real love for what they do, and interacted well with our students, especially the challengers.

Saundra L Davis, RN, School Nurse

The staff worked extremely well with our 3-5 year old students and our autistic students. They are always pleasant, well organized, and efficient!

Mary Tolmie, MSN, RN, CSN, School Nurse

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

As always, it was a pleasure having the Mobile Dentist team visit our school. Our children certainly are fortunate to have such a wonderful and beneficial opportunity!

Joanne Conn, School Nurse

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

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

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.

Lisa A. Knight, RN, Registered School Nurse

Mobile Dentists far surpassed my expectations. The staff was warm and gentle with the students, while being highly efficient and effective. I was quite impressed with their speedy set up and compact equipment. Our school is very old, and they were able to utilize a very small space to turn into the “dentist office”. In addition, their office staff took care of everything in terms of paperwork. They verified insurance, contacted parents for more information, and supplied families with grant paperwork. Thank you Mobile Dentists for a wonderful experience; I know we will be seeing you again next year.

Christina Bancroft, BSN, CSN-NJ, School Nurse

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

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

Thank you for your excellent service to our school community!

Becky Drummond, Elementary Principal

Friendly staff and great service. A wonderful program that supports our community with a great smile.

Nicolas Perez, Principal Cheltenham Elementary

The Big Smiles dental crew were great! They were all terrific with the kids and worked hard to see everyone. They ended up treating 75 of our students that otherwise may not have been to a dentist. There is just no way to express how happy that makes me! I look forward to having them back!

Erin Bonham, RN, School Nurse

We love the Smile Programs dental program. It gives our children who do not have access to good dental care a chance to see a great dentist work. We have many children who have never seen a dentist before. These children now have access to a great service.

Charmaine Linkins, School Nurse William Beanes Elementary School

The staff is very professional and compassionate, which is very important to the young students we serve.

Donna Davis, Family Advocate

Excellent, friendly, professional staff. Works well with our special needs students. Love them all!

Kim Dougherty, RN, School Nurse

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

The dental team arrived on time and had their equipment set up and ready to go promptly. They were very professional and explained everything that was going to happen to the students before they began their individual tasks. We had some first time students who had never been seen by the program before, and they put those students as well as the others at ease. We would recommend them to any school. They were kind and welcoming to everyone, including staff who stopped in to see how the program works, and volunteers who helped coordinate the flow of students back and forth from the classrooms for treatments.

Patricia Holston, RN, School Nurse

The dental team made the visit extremely easy for the office. They had a list of all the students to be seen with teacher names. All I needed to do was provide a location, room numbers, and a daily schedule. They were all very professional.

Michelle Siegeler, School Administrative Assistant

This service was wonderful. I would gladly recommend it to any other program. The staff was wonderful and very helpful.

Jessica Davis, RN, RDH, Health and Community Services Manager

I always like having the Mobile Dentists come to my school, because I am so amazed they are able to see all our little ones and we never have a screaming episode. Everyone is always looking forward to seeing the Dentist. I never have parents displeased with the services or how they were conducted. I wish you would consider giving us one day of adult check ups!

Yvette Franklin, Health Professional

We love Big Smiles! So many of our kids would go without any dental care without it. They are wonderful with the kids and we could not be more pleased with the service.

Angel Goldberg, RN, School Nurse Maplewood Richmond Heights 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

The staff was always wonderful, very professional, and kind to everyone. I wouldn’t have any other business come to my school to provide this service. Your company beats my expectations by a mile! I was able to call (daily almost) and get the answers I needed with no hassle. Suzie was wonderful, very attentive, very knowledgeable, and just overall wonderful! The past two years have been great with the Mobile Dentist Program, and I look forward to many more.

Jacilyn Habura, Secretary/Health Aide

The staff did a wonderful job this year with the elementary and middle school students! They were friendly and very efficient with their time. They treated 40 students, which I believe was a record year for us!

Andrea McGrew, District Nurse

The dentists who come are great. They are warm and welcoming to our students, and our students love them! Thank you for always ensuring our visits run smoothly.

Karoline Alexander, Community School Director

The Mobile Dentists program is such an asset to my students in delivering dental health care, helping to keep absenteeism down, and health habits up! I will definitely have the Mobile Dentists visit our school again!

Chris Musial, MS, RN, NJ-CSN, NCSN, School Nurse

Professional, friendly, and wonderful service! That’s my experience with Mobile Dentists.

Johnny Raynor, BSN, RN, EMT-P, CSN, School Nurse
