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

Manchester Avenue Elementary,

Dr. Ash and her team have a fabulous rapport with our children, and explain everything at their level so they understand the procedures. No fear or crying at all, and for K-2, that’s saying something! We really love this service and it is much needed in our community. Thank You!

Michelle Hagglund, Registered Nurse

Always a great experience!

Mike Honemann, Director

Thank you for your excellent service to our school community!

Becky Drummond, Elementary Principal

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

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

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

The staff and dentist were exceptional with our students. Thank you so very much!

Kat Brook, Administrative Assistant Veritas Academy

Thank you to the entire dental team for the wonderful service provided to our students. From start to finish everything was professional and organized. This was my first time having the Mobile Dentists at our school, and the feedback received from students, parents, and school staff was extremely positive. We are looking forward to having you back.

Nadine Rickards, School 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

A pleasure to work with your staff! They were very accommodating to our classroom schedules. Dr. Jewell and the dental assistants and hygienist were wonderful with the students. We had a great three days, and we were able to let their parents know if further dental care was needed. Thanks so much!

Marynan Mudd, Family Resource Center Coordinator

Always great with the students, and a pleasure to have. My school really benefits from this program on our campus.

Ms. Klein, School Nurse

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

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

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

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

I appreciate the services you provide to our school and children. Some have never been to the dentist, and other dental programs don’t service the whole school population. Thanks again!

Annette M. Scott, RN, BSN, LSN, School Nurse Ironton City Schools

It is always a pleasure working with this program. The staff are very friendly and self sufficient. We’re grateful to be able to provide this service to our students who would otherwise possibly go without dental care.

Tanya, School Nurse Bibich Elementary

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

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 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

I’d like to compliment all of your dental team for the excellent service they provided to our kids. Thank you!

Juliana Reyes, Family Resource Coordinator Graves County Central Elementary School

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

Smile Illinois has been visiting AFL for a number of years now. It gives our students a great opportunity for a dental check up and cleaning. The dental staff are very helpful and professional. Thank you for coming!

Gretchen Hogan, RN, School Nurse

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

Carol Dzialak, BSN, RN, School Nurse Xavier School of Excellence

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

Kelli Sanders, Health Aide

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

We appreciate the opportunity to work with the Smile Program. The friendly service the team provides helps to fill the gap in access to oral health care for children under age 5 in our community.

Katrina Harwood, WIC Director, Marion Public Health

The Smile Program is a wonderful service for students and parents who are on the go and just can’t seem to find enough time in the day to make that most needed dental stop. I would recommend this program to everyone that I know because the staff is very friendly and highly professional at all times. Thanks Smile Programs for servicing our students here at Emerson School. We’re looking forward to your next visit!

Lashunda Harold, Health Clerk

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

Karen Richardson, RN, CHN Wheatley Education Campus

The staff was incredibly friendly and efficient, and they showed up on time and prepared to work each day they visited us at HCP. Thank you!

Elizabeth Cushing, Paraprofessional

The staff is always professional, nice, and friendly. I always enjoy having them.

Charlotte Morris, School Nurse

This service was one of the best resources that our school could have used. There are always so many students who don’t have a dentist and the parents don’t know where to go to get help for those students who need dental help. It’s so great that the dental team can come to the school to service the students. The school staff and parents thank Smile Programs so much for coming to help our students.

Natasha Mayweather, RN, School Nurse Holy Family School

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

Our Carnell School Family truly appreciated the dental services that you provide to our scholars here at school. Your team works in harmony getting the children screened and then providing the needed services. We hope to continue seeing Mobile Dentists here at Carnell Elementary in the years to come.

Vanessa Faine, School Nurse

Your service is most welcome at our school. It provides our children with the care that they would otherwise not receive. THANKS SO MUCH!

Serena Taylor, Secretary Duchesne Elementary School

Great job Big Smiles Dental!

D. Williams, Coordinator

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

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

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

Sandy Marsh, Coordinator

Every comment I heard about the program and staff was overwhelmingly positive!

Steve Basnight, Principal

We love the Smile Programs dental program. It gives our children who do not have access to good dental care a chance to see a great dentist work. We have many children who have never seen a dentist before. These children now have access to a great service.

Charmaine Linkins, School Nurse William Beanes ES

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 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

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

Jennifer Vaughn, District Nurse

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

Your entire staff was excellent, professional, and very pleasant!! It was a joy and an honor to work with them as they provided a valuable service to our students. They were prompt and efficient as we overcame a few challenges. Each one of your staff showed a real love for what they do, and interacted well with our students, especially the challengers.

Saundra L Davis, RN, School Nurse

It is always a pleasure to have your services and help the kids of Baltimore City. I am grateful to know that an organization such as yours will provide a much needed dental health care need, now and in the future.

Donna Caudle, RN Walter P. Carter Elementary/Middle School

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

Mary Figueroa, Health Assistant Mary Belle McCorkle Academy of Excellence

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.
