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

The Smile Programs Dental Program is great! This program helps children to be relaxed about seeing the dentist and taking care of their teeth. The dental teams work well together and are supportive of each other. I like this program and wish you much success with helping children and our local school district.Brigitte James Registrar, Langdon Elementary School

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
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
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.
