Wayne Rankin, RN, DON Liberty Point Health Care RTC

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

Thank you for working with our students! Your staff has always been adaptable to the conditions at our school, with a friendly, professional manner. The students who are seen are appreciative of the care you provide. Thanks so much!

Christine Novak, RN, BSN, School Nurse New Bern High School

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

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

Dental staff were helpful and pleasant! The office staff remarked about how self sufficient you all were in gathering the necessary students and contacting parents! Thank you!

Jessica G., District Nurse

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

Susie was wonderful to work with in coordinating the visit.

Ilundria Bardwell, RN

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

The dentist and hygienists were very thorough seeing students. Many students told the nurse how nice they were and it “didn’t hurt at all!” They took time with the students and were not trying to hurry them out the door. Our students had many dental issues…having this service available has been wonderful! We even had students from other schools in our district the dentist previously saw that were having issues. They immediately saw the student and addressed the concern!

Rachel Lee, RN, School Nurse

Always a pleasure to deal with and they always do a wonderful job!

Matty Leocadio, School Nurse, RN, BSN

As always, we are very happy with your service. Your friendliness and professionalism is outstanding!

Mary Beth Delano, Registered Nurse Cople Elementary

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

Staff arrived promptly, set up quickly, and were conscientious about not having students out of class any longer than necessary. They were very friendly and very professional.

Tracy McKinney, LPN, School Nurse Seymour Middle School

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

Marlaina Reel, School Nurse

We are so fortunate to be able to participate in this much needed program. Thank you!

Sandy Marsh, Coordinator

The team was wonderful. They worked through their lunch to fit in all my students. The students and parents were so pleased with the dental care. The delivery was organized and effective, and minimally disruptive to the school day. I can’t wait to have them at our school again.

Sarah Kupchick, RN, BSN, CSN

The services were absolutely beneficial for my school, and assisting my families with obtaining the services needed. I also thought the tooth brushing demonstration was great!

Stephanie L. Thomas, CHN/RN

Professional and friendly staff that are easy and understanding to work with. Overall, kids are excited when they come.

Tanya Ange, School Nurse John Small Elementary School

We love Big Smiles! So many of our kids would go without any dental care without it. They are wonderful with the kids and we could not be more pleased with the service.

Angel Goldberg, RN, School Nurse Maplewood Richmond Heights Elementary School

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

Wonderful team to work with!

Chris James, RN, School Nurse

Thanks again for coming and seeing our students! We appreciate the professionalism, kind words, and dental teaching you provided them! The program is so easy to work with and all went well and ran smoothly!

Sharon Chura, Certified School Nurse Purchase Line School District

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

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

Thank you for all you do. Some of our children would have no dental care if it weren’t for you.

Cara Dalton, School Nurse Hardy Elementary School

The staff was very professional and friendly, and they knew exactly what to do. No complaints on our part. Thank you for your service!

Rosario Gutierrez, School Administrative Assistant

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

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!

The service was excellent. Awesome program and staff! We look forward to having Smile Programs here.

Your program is wonderful, and has been coming to my school approximately 4 years. When asked about the program, I recommend it to all NNPS nurses.

Pat Inge, RN, School Nurse

The dental team has a wealth of expertise in pediatric dentistry and ensures students have a comfortable experience. They eliminate the fear some students may have of going to the dentist. The team also informs me of the most severe cases, so I may follow up with the parents to ensure restorative care is executed.

Your dental team is very friendly, hard working, and dedicated to helping the children.
