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

Very flexible with our special needs students!

Margie Rossander, RN, School Nurse Canterbury Elementary

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 team was wonderful. They worked through their lunch to fit in all my students. The students and parents were so pleased with the dental care. The delivery was organized and effective, and minimally disruptive to the school day. I can’t wait to have them at our school again.

Sarah Kupchick, RN, BSN, CSN

The mobile dentist provided excellent service to the students at Southeast Elementary. The team was very kid friendly, and made the process fun for the kids. Everyone walked out with a smile! We look forward to next year.

Araceli McBeth, Health Aide Southeast Elementary School

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

Everyone was courteous and professional. The team was able to finish early and they were great with the children. Thank you for another great experience.

Cortney Williams-Loyd, Site Coordinator Ezra Jack Keats Pre-K Center

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 is very friendly and provides a great service to our students.

Lori Bradigan, LPN Oaklyn Elementary

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

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!

Kim Price, Community Health Educator, Blue Cross Complete of Michigan

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

I absolutely love that you are able to provide this service during normal school hours, ensuring our scholars are being seen and their dental needs cared for. Every year, your staff is always kind and efficient!

Leah Martello, Dean of Scholars

Excellent service and friendly staff! This is a much needed service for our students, and we appreciate the care that you provide for our district!

Tina Perry, RN, 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 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 Smile Programs Dental Program is great! This program helps children to be relaxed about seeing the dentist and taking care of their teeth. The dental teams work well together and are supportive of each other. I like this program and wish you much success with helping children and our local school district.

Brigitte James, Registrar Langdon Elementary School

I appreciate the services you provide to our school and children. Some have never been to the dentist, and other dental programs don’t service the whole school population. Thanks again!

Annette M. Scott, RN, BSN, LSN, School Nurse Ironton City Schools

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

I love, love, love the Smile Programs staff and service. We have partnered for years, and our satisfaction with the services offered have been consistent. I look forward to working with you all next year.

LaTonya Maxwell, Family Support Counselor UChicago Charter School - Donoghue Campus

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

The team took extra time with a special needs student that I didn’t think would cooperate. They were able to reassure her, and provided care quickly and painlessly.

Cindy, 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

The Smile Illinois mobile dentists is an excellent program! The dentist and staff are so good at what they do, and are wonderful with the kids. I think this is a wonderful program that benefits our students a great deal!

Gina VanCleave, RN, BSN

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

This is a very important program for public schools!

Betty Girsch, 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 dentist and assistants were awesome! Go with the flow kind of team! They worked non-stop until the job was done. Thank you for coming to our school!

Stephanie Keller RN, BSN, School Nurse Mast Community Charter School II

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

The dental team was on time, friendly, and professional.

Karen Richardson, RN, CHN Wheatley Education Campus

Thanks again for coming and seeing our students! We appreciate the professionalism, kind words, and dental teaching you provided them! The program is so easy to work with and all went well and ran smoothly!

Sharon Chura, Certified School Nurse Purchase Line School District

As always, we are very happy with your service. Your friendliness and professionalism is outstanding!

Mary Beth Delano, RN Cople Elementary

Thank you for all you do. Some of our children would have no dental care if it weren’t for you.

Carol Dzialak, BSN, RN, School Nurse Xavier School of Excellence

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

Every comment I heard about the program and staff was overwhelmingly positive!

Steve Basnight, Principal

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

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

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

The services were absolutely beneficial for my school, and assisting my families with obtaining the services needed. I also thought the tooth brushing demonstration was great!

Stephanie L. Thomas, CHN/RN

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

Kim Dougherty, RN, School Nurse

Thank you for your excellent service to our school community!

Becky Drummond, Elementary Principal

It is always a pleasure to have your services and help the kids of Baltimore City. I am grateful to know that an organization such as yours will provide a much needed dental health care need, now and in the future.

Donna Caudle, RN Walter P. Carter Elementary/Middle School

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!

Michelle Hagglund, Registered Nurse

The staff that comes to our school is excellent. They are so good with the kids and our teachers.

Barbara Gray, Clinic Aide Northwestern 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

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

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

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

We are VERY pleased to be able to offer your services to our students. Thank you so much!

Angela Vass, RN Carroll County

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

The residents are so appreciative of the care they receive. The “team” are true professionals and work extremely well together. Thank you so much for seeing the children!

Wayne Rankin, RN, DON Liberty Point Health Care RTC
