Dental Screenings- January 18th

Posted Date: 1/08/24 (10:19 AM)

Kansas State Statute 72‐6251 requires all students enrolled in Kansas schools to receive a free dental screening each year. 

Your school will be providing a free dental screening to all students enrolled during this school year.

Oral health is an important part of children’s overall health and is a critical component in the child’s ability to learn and succeed in school. This screening does not replace the exam provided by your dentist.

Passive consent is indicated for a school dental screening; therefore, all students will be screened unless the parent or guardian does not want the child to participate.

If you wish to opt out of the screening, please complete the form at the bottom of the page by January 16, 2024. If you wish for your child to participate no further action is necessary. This form only needs to be completed if your child is OPTING OUT. A copy of the screening results will be sent home with the child.

If you have questions, please contact your school nurse by phone or email. Thank you for your participation.
