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

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

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

We enjoyed having Smile Pennsylvania at our school. The team provides a much needed service to the children in our school.

Andrea McCoy, Certified School Nurse Stephen Girard Elementary School

The ladies from the program are fabulous! The kids love going to the dentist when they come, and everyone is smiling and happy!

Kelli Sanders, Health Aide

The residents are so appreciative of the care they receive. The “team” are true professionals and work extremely well together. Thank you so much for seeing the children!

Wayne Rankin, RN, DON Liberty Point Health Care RTC

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

I have worked with Smile Programs for several years now and can’t say enough good about your program.

Carol Halpin, 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

Friendly staff and great service. A wonderful program that supports our community with a great smile.

Nicolas Perez, Principal Cheltenham Elementary

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 School

It is a great way to give the children dental service at no cost to parents, because sometimes our parents don’t have the money, nor the transportation to get them to the dentist.

Sonia De La Torre, SAA

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

Always a great experience!

Mike Honemann, Director

Smile New York is a wonderful in-school dental prevention program. Our students were engaged and excited about the dentist visiting. It was beneficial to have so many of our students receive dental health services and walk out with clean and treated teeth. The dental staff was caring, supportive, and professional. Our overall experience was great!

Audra Jimenez, Director of Counseling and Student Support Services

Very flexible with our special needs students!

Margie Rossander, RN, School Nurse Canterbury Elementary

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

Our Carnell School Family truly appreciated the dental services that you provide to our scholars here at school. Your team works in harmony getting the children screened and then providing the needed services. We hope to continue seeing Mobile Dentists here at Carnell Elementary in the years to come.

Vanessa Faine, School Nurse

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

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 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

This was our first visit from the Smile Programs team and we were extremely pleased with the services we received. The team was on time, professional, patient, and kind with our children. I am looking forward to our 6 month follow up and hope that our participation will continue to increase.

Wendy Adams, LPN, Health Services Coordinator

I was very pleased with the professionalism of the team. They were very caring and it was the best dental experience. Keep up the outstanding work!

Kate Haenig, Social Worker

The mobile dentist program is always so amazing! The staff is always friendly and professional, and we are always grateful for your visit. The students are so excited when they know that the mobile dentist is coming. Thank you so much for attending our academy!

Marquita Hall, RN, School Nurse

I always appreciate timeliness and professionalism, and that is exactly what your service provided for my center.

V. Carter, Administrator Ready 2 Learn Childcare Center

he dental team arrived on time and had their equipment set up and ready to go promptly. They were very professional and explained everything that was going to happen to the students before they began their individual tasks. We had some first time students who had never been seen by the program before, and they put those students as well as the others at ease. We would recommend them to any school. They were kind and welcoming to everyone, including staff who stopped in to see how the program works, and volunteers who helped coordinate the flow of students back and forth from the classrooms for treatments.

Patricia Holston, RN, School Nurse

It is always a pleasure to have your services and help the kids of Baltimore City. I am grateful to know that an organization such as yours will provide a much needed dental health care need, now and in the future.

Donna Caudle, RN Walter P. Carter Elementary/Middle School

The dentist and assistants were awesome! Go with the flow kind of team! They worked non-stop until the job was done. Thank you for coming to our school!

Stephanie Keller, RN, BSN, School Nurse Mast Community Charter School II

The Smile Program is a wonderful service for students and parents who are on the go and just can’t seem to find enough time in the day to make that most needed dental stop. I would recommend this program to everyone that I know because the staff is very friendly and highly professional at all times. Thanks Smile Programs for servicing our students here at Emerson School. We’re looking forward to your next visit!

Lashunda Harold, Health Clerk

We are very thankful for your program. We have several students who would not see a dentist if you did not come to our school. Thank you very much!

Gina Berry, Clinic 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

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

Dr. Cindy and Dawn are wonderful! They are great at easing the minds of the frightened kids.

Jennifer Vaughn, 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

Love the team of Joi, Dr. King, and Pam….and others! You guys rock! So great with the students!

Teresa Pratt, District Nurse

Great, friendly, generous service. We appreciate it very much!

Bridget Montgomery, Case Manager

Wonderful program, and we hope to have more student participation next year. Very caring staff!

Bonnie Rink, Health Aide

Awesome, and so good with students who are afraid or nervous. The follow up care was wonderful!

Marlaina Reel, School Nurse

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 ES

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

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

We appreciate the opportunity to work with the Smile Program. The friendly service the team provides helps to fill the gap in access to oral health care for children under age 5 in our community.

Katrina Harwood, WIC Director, Marion Public Health

Susie was wonderful to work with in coordinating the visit.

Ilundria Bardwell, RN

Your service is most welcome at our school. It provides our children with the care that they would otherwise not receive. THANKS SO MUCH!

Serena Taylor, Secretary Duchesne Elementary School

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

This is a wonderful service you offer to students, and is very professional and reliable. Thanks so much!

Shelly Bird, Secretary Creekview Elementary School

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

This is an excellent service for students and parents.

Tony Reece, School Finance Officer/School Records Data Management Mountain Park Elementary School

Wonderful, kind, fast and efficient!

Holly Avery, Administrative Assistant Whitehall Shoreline Elementary School

This is such a wonderful program…the children ask frequently when the dentist is coming back! We are such a rural area that the closest dental facility that accepts some insurance programs is 90 minutes away. That means a full day of missed work for the parent, a full day of missed school for the student, and a very long drive. Thank you so much!

Susan O’Bier, RN Northumberland Elementary School

The program is wonderful and the parents and students are very happy with the program. Thank you for doing this!

Joyce Batts, Parent Coordinator P.S. 298
