Dental Health News

Parents/Guardians of students in grades 1st thru 6th

Unfortunately NYSDOH (New York State Department of Health) Bureau of Dental Health has postponed the Fluoride mouth rinse “swish” program for the 2014 – 2015 school year for students in grades 1st thru 6th.  Therefore there will be no permission slips coming home to participate in this program.  NYSDOH may consider doing it again in the future.   I apologize for the inconvenience associated with this decision of the NYSDOH and I look forward to continuing to work with you to improve your children's oral health.  I will continue to see the children here at the school for their visits and place a fluoride varnish on them at least once a year.  At home, your child can rinse with an over the counter fluoride rinse on a daily basis.  If they see their dentist or physician on a regular basis, they can get a prescription for a fluoride tablet.

Thank you,

 Mrs. Baxter, DCS Dental Hygienist
