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 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.

Kalie George, Executive Director

The dentist and dental staff were very kind, gentle, sweet, and patient with all our students. They arrived on time every day and were very happy to be in our school providing services to the students. They were honest, informative, and helpful. They told the students step by step what they were going to do before using any of their equipment, and asked the students if they had any questions. Their professionalism, patience, and knowledge helped the students with their fears. At the end of the visit, everyone went home with a brand new tooth brush, sticker, and copy of the work that was done on their teeth. It was a pleasure to have them!

Ximena Salvador, School Liaison

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.

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

Lori Bradigan, LPN Oaklyn Elementary

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

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

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

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

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.

This program is something we have needed for a long time. They do excellent work!

They are EXCELLENT with our students. We are so happy about the restorative care that is now available as well. We look forward to your visits. You are making a huge difference in the lives of our students. Thank you!

Joanne Witts, RN, District Nurse

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

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 am very pleased that some of our students opted to participate because this very well may be the only dental visit they get. Thank you!

Brittani Christman, School Nurse River Elementary

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

Outstanding service and care for my students, and a great team to work with!

Lisa Fox, School Nurse

The team was amazing, and they displayed remarkable patience and kindness to each student. They saw 30 children in our school, some who had never been to the dentist before. The process was well organized, resulting in minimal disruption to the school day. Many thanks!

Summer Piller, School Nurse Westwood Hills Elementary School

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

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

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

Thank you for working with our students! Your staff has always been adaptable to the conditions at our school, with a friendly, professional manner. The students who are seen are appreciative of the care you provide. Thanks so much!

We enjoyed having Smile Pennsylvania at our school. The team provides a much needed service to the children in our school.

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.
