Everyone was wonderful and the dentists were friendly and professional.Therese Gallagher Family Nurse Practitioner
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.Sharon Wingfield Assistant Principal, Horace Mann Academy
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

Like you, we know the Covid-19 pandemic has caused a lapse in healthcare, including dental care.
All of us at Big Smiles have put a great deal of thought and care into ensuring everyone’s safety while providing the dental care children need now more than ever. Over the past several months we have been working tirelessly to develop health and safety protocols, taking into consideration CDC guidelines and working in conjunction with leading dental academics.
We have already heard from many parents who have told us they are relying on their child’s school, now, more than ever, as the place their child will receive dental care and we are ready to do our part to ensure they maintain healthy smiles.
Parents who want to sign up their children can do so here.
