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

Manchester Avenue Elementary,

This dental program runs very independently, with little assistance from school staff. It provides a great service for our students.

Patti Oester, Administrative Assistant Flanagan Grade School

Wonderful team to work with!

Chris James, 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

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

Excellent service! Thank You!

Kathleen Perry, RN, School Nurse

The dental team made the visit extremely easy for the office. They had a list of all the students to be seen with teacher names. All I needed to do was provide a location, room numbers, and a daily schedule. They were all very professional.

Michelle Siegeler, School Administrative Assistant

We loved the team that came! They truly sought to serve kids well, and worked hard to make sure everyone received excellent serve.

Kalie George, Executive Director

The dental team was on time, friendly, and professional.

Karen Richardson, RN, CHN Wheatley Education Campus

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

This program is something we have needed for a long time. They do excellent work!

Jenny Saylor Farmer, FRYSC Coordinator Cumberland Elementary FRYSC

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

Bonnie Rink, Health Aide

This program is excellent, all schools should participate. The kids were very excited and some mentioned that the visit to the dentist is not as scary as they thought. Your staff is awesome and caring, and our students were very happy.

Zoraida Olivo, Operations Manager

The dentist and hygienist did an amazing job! In addition to the usual dental check-up, they did a lot of health teaching as well. They gave each child individualized attention and made sure each child felt good about him or her self, even if they had a cavity! I really liked that! They were sensitive to student needs and very nice to deal with. We can’t wait for them to come again!

Hagit Stone, School 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

Everyone was courteous and professional. The team was able to finish early and they were great with the children. Thank you for another great experience!

Cortney Williams-Loyd, Site Coordinator Ezra Jack Keats Pre-K Center

Everyone was wonderful and the dentists were friendly and professional.

Therese Gallagher, Family Nurse Practitioner

We love having you come to our school. Your staff is great!

Mandy Powell, Secretary Centennial Elementary School

Excellent, friendly, professional staff. Works well with our special needs students. Love them all!

Kim Dougherty, RN, School Nurse

The staff were very efficient and organized, and the program ran smoothly.

Cynthia H. Morgan, Principal Edgemont Primary

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

Thank you for coming and providing your services to ensure the dental requirements and health of our children are met at Head Start!

Valerie Dierckman, Health Specialist II

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

Bridget Montgomery, Case Manager

The Mobile Dentist program continues to impress me every year. The office staff does an amazing job taking care of all the details. The dental team is professional and so easy to work with. They are EXCELLENT with our students. We are so happy about the restorative care that is now available as well. We look forward to your visits. You are making a huge difference in the lives of our students. Thank you!

Joanne Witts, RN, District Nurse

Working with the staff at the Mobile Dentists office was very easy. They were very accommodating when choosing a visit date and were very efficient while processing the students’ permission forms. The staff from the Little Smiles New Jersey program that came to Mastery McGraw Elementary School were wonderful. They were prompt with their arrival and were very professional and friendly with the students and staff at our school. They saw 22 students at the visit and each student benefited from the work the dentist and dental hygienist did on their teeth. We have already scheduled our next visit for the fall and cannot wait to have the mobile dentists back at McGraw to see and help more of our students. Thank you!

Chelsea Trach RN, BSN, 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

We are so happy you come here and provide a much needed service. These students would never receive it if the parents had to leave work or get transportation to ascertain care. Thank you so much for your work!

Marilyn Namey, School Nurse Hanover Area High School

It’s a great service, and we love having the dental team come.

Brenda Hanson, LVN

The Mobile Dentists program is such an asset to my students in delivering dental health care, helping to keep absenteeism down, and health habits up! I will definitely have the Mobile Dentists visit our school again!

Chris Musial, MS, RN, NJ-CSN, NCSN, School Nurse

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

The team was amazing, and they displayed remarkable patience and kindness to each student. They saw 30 children in our school, some who had never been to the dentist before. The process was well organized, resulting in minimal disruption to the school day. Many thanks!

Summer Piller, School Nurse Westwood Hills Elementary School

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

Teresa Pratt, District Nurse

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

I can’t say enough about your staff! They are so wonderful to our parents and students here at Collins! They are a joy to work with!

Kathy Oehler, FRC Coordinator

I can only say great things about Sherrie. She is awesome with the clients here, and all of the clients ask if she will be returning in 6 months. Dr. Reisinger is great also, and will see all of the clients scheduled that day even if he has over 100 sealants. The restorative team is great also.

Shalonda Allen, Patient Care Coordinator

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

Excellent service to our students!

Dr. Beverley Martin, Assistant Principal

Outstanding service and care for my students, and a great team to work with!

Lisa Fox, School Nurse

I love, love, love the Smile Programs staff and service! We have partnered for years, and our satisfaction with the services offered have been consistent. I look forward to working with you all next year.

LaTonya Maxwell, Family Support Counselor UChicago Charter School - Donoghue Campus

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

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

Marlaina Reel, School Nurse

This is an excellent service for students and parents.

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

Marie Newton, RN, School Nurse

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

Lori Rice, RN, School Nurse

The Big Smiles dental services were excellent. The dental team worked very efficiently and diligently when providing services to our students. I was impressed with the services provided to students on the spot in the school setting.

Remona C. Sands, Family Resource Center Coordinator

The staff did a wonderful job this year with the elementary and middle school students! They were friendly and very efficient with their time. They treated 40 students, which I believe was a record year for us!

Andrea McGrew, District Nurse

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 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 are so thankful for the wonderful dental care your organization provides to our students. Many would not receive any dental care if it were not for the Mobile Dentists.

Elizabeth J. Hollingsworth, RN, School Nurse
