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

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 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

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 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!

Christine Novak, RN, BSN, NCSN, School Nurse New Bern High School

This is an excellent service for students and parents.

Tony Reece, School Finance Officer/School Records Data Manager Mountain Park 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

The staff is warm and they treat the kids and staff with respect. We love to have the visits from the dental staff.

Elizabeth Shook, Lead School Nurse Madison County

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

We are so thankful for the wonderful dental care your organization provides to our students. Many would not receive any dental care if it were not for the Mobile Dentists.

Elizabeth J. Hollingsworth, RN, 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 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

We loved the team that came! They truly sought to serve kids well, and worked hard to make sure everyone received excellent serve.

Kalie George, Executive Director

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

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

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

This program goes above and beyond, and they are professional and compassionate about what they do. We are grateful for this program!

Tammy Carey, 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

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

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

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 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

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

Donna Davis, Family Advocate

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

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

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

The program is great, and really helps a lot of families which cannot get these services, or never thought to get these services done.

Gladys Fonua, Administrative Assistant

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

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

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

Angela Vass, RN Carroll County

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

Cynthia H. Morgan, Principal Edgemont Primary

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

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

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

Mary Figueroa, Health Assistant Mary Belle McCorkle Academy of Excellence

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

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

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

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

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

Mary Beth Delano, RN Cople Elementary

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

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

It is a pleasure to work with an efficient and caring team!

Saundra L. Davis, RN, School Nurse Lincoln Elementary

Staff arrived promptly, set up quickly, and were conscientious about not having students out of class any longer than necessary. They were very friendly and very professional.

Tracy McKinney, LPN, School Nurse Seymour Middle School

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

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

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

Your dentist and staff are awesome with our special needs children, and are so patient and kind. They made the visit for most less frightening for future exams. One preschool student went back to her class raving about her experience, and stating “They tickled my teeth!”.

M Stevens, RN

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
