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

We were very impressed with the organization and efficiency of the dental program. What a great service! Having programs such as these provides great benefits and service to our students and is very much appreciated!

Bridget C. Lucardie, MSN, RN, School Nurse

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

Friendly and efficient. Great with the kids!

Mary Beth Delano, RN

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

I saw the results of your work, and my parents and students were extremely happy. Thank you all for making our children smile brighter.

Linda, Parent Coordinator

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

Matty Leocadio, School Nurse, RN, BSN

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

Bonnie Rink, Health Aide

The service was very good!

Helson Santiago, SAPIS Counselor

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

The Smile Illinois mobile dentists is an excellent program! The dentist and staff are so good at what they do, and are wonderful with the kids. I think this is a wonderful program that benefits our students a great deal!

Gina VanCleave, RN, BSN

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

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

Jennifer Vaughn, District Nurse

The service was awesome, keep up the excellent work!

Kristoffer Green, Family Worker

The staff are very professional and friendly. We love to have Smile Programs come to our school, and our students like your dental team. Some of the students feel scared before they have the cleaning, but after the dental visit they are happy and say “Look my teeth are clean”.

Juana Loza-Espinoza, Health Clinic Specialist

You did a fantastic job with my older “Junior High” population of students. They were very comfortable with the entire experience!

Rita Baker, RN, District Nurse

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

We were very pleased, and the children had a very positive experience.

Susan Myers, RN School Nurse

Your dentist and staff are awesome with our special needs children, and are so patient and kind. They made the visit for most less frightening for future exams. One preschool student went back to her class raving about her experience, and stating “They tickled my teeth!”.

M Stevens, RN

This is such a needed service for our students at FDA II. Thank you for bringing their needs to them.

Ashley Maxie-Moreman, Community School Director

Excellent service and friendly staff! This is a much needed service for our students, and we appreciate the care that you provide for our district!

Tina Perry, RN, School Nurse

The dentist and dental staff were very kind, gentle, sweet, and patient with all our students. They arrived on time every day and were very happy to be in our school providing services to the students. They were honest, informative, and helpful. They told the students step by step what they were going to do before using any of their equipment, and asked the students if they had any questions. Their professionalism, patience, and knowledge helped the students with their fears. At the end of the visit, everyone went home with a brand new tooth brush, sticker, and copy of the work that was done on their teeth. It was a pleasure to have them!

Ximena Salvador, School Liaison

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

Marlaina Reel, School Nurse

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

Excellent service and “bedside manner”. Every person in the dental team was awesome.

Blair, Registered Nurse

Everyone was wonderful and the dentists were friendly and professional.

Therese Gallagher, Family Nurse Practitioner

Love this program, and so do the staff and parents!

Tiffany Fitts, LPN

Wonderful program!

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

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

Sandy Marsh, Coordinator

Dr. Beverley Martin, Assistant Principal

Sheena Duncan, Family Support Specialist

You are always very nice and helpful. Thank you for all you do for the students.

Wanda Wampler, School 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

Excellent program! We are so grateful to you for providing such a needed service to our students!

Sandra Kluk, Social Worker

Wonderful team to work with!

Chris James, RN, School Nurse

The team took extra time with a special needs student that I didn’t think would cooperate. They were able to reassure her, and provided care quickly and painlessly.

Cindy, School Nurse

Excellent program, excellent staff, keep coming to our schools!

Susan Jessee, Registered Nurse

The service was great, and the students are always excited to see the dentist. The dentist and technicians explained to the students how to take care of their teeth.

Andujar, Secretary

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

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

Always a great experience!
