"Shine Your Smile Day" !
Bates Elementary School is hosting Smile Programs... the mobile dentists on Tuesday, April 29, 2014. The dental team will set up a mini-dental office in our building and provide dental services for all children who return completed forms. Dental services can be provided to families who need financial assistance, and there are subsidized fees for those who choose to pay for preventative care. The Smile Programs has been servicing schools, and creating healthy smiles, for over 14 years. All dentists are state licensed and will conduct a complete dental exam. Signing up your children to see the mobile dentist team is an easy way for them to get necessary dental care. You can learn more about the Smile Programs... the mobile dentists by by clicking here and watching the short video about the dental care program.
