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

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

Cynthia H. Morgan, Principal Edgemont Primary

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

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

Donna Davis, Family Advocate

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

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

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

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

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

Steve Basnight, Principal

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

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

Lisa Fox, 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!

A Bernard, 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

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 staff and dentist were exceptional with our students. Thank you so very much!

Kat Brook, Administrative Assistant Veritas Academy

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 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

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

We are so happy you come here and provide a much needed service. These students would never receive it if the parents had to leave work or get transportation to ascertain care. Thank you so much for your work!

Marilyn Namey, School Nurse Hanover Area High School

The staff put the students at ease. The program helps to reduce the time students have to miss school and parents miss work.

Beverly L. Taylor, CHN

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

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 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

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

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

The Mobile Dentist program continues to impress me every year. The office staff does an amazing job taking care of all the details. The dental team is professional and so easy to work with. 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

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

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

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

Saundra L. Davis, RN, School Nurse Lincoln 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

Efficient, friendly, flexible, and prompt! The hygienist came in to greet the office staff first thing in the morning. A few times I walked by the room where they were set up, and for a mobile unit it is an extremely professional set up. It was a pleasant experience for the staff and children. Thank you for a wonderful service to the community and children.

Catherine Aldrich, Administrative Assistant

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

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

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

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 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

You have wonderful, patient staff, that are very friendly. I hope Montlieu’s hospitality was warm and inviting. Thanks for all you do for our students here at the ‘Lieu’!

Marsha C. Erwin, CIS Student Support Specialist Montlieu Academy of Technology/CIS

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

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

Having the dental team here at the high school for a day was wonderful. Thank you!

Patty Skinner, School Nurse Trimble High 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

Thank you for your excellent service to our school community!

Becky Drummond, Elementary Principal

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 friendly and provides a great service to our students.

Lori Bradigan, LPN Oaklyn Elementary
