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

Manchester Avenue Elementary,

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

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

Our students have special needs and the dental team was very attentive while caring for their needs. They were simply awesome!

Anna Calhoun, Practical Nurse SPEED School

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

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

The team is always efficient and caring. They are good with the students, especially the ones who have some anxiety. They are attentive to detail and I love having them come to the school.

Janelle Burnett, School Nurse

We love Big Smiles! So many of our kids would go without any dental care without it. They are wonderful with the kids and we could not be more pleased with the service.

Angel Goldberg, RN, School Nurse Maplewood Richmond Heights Elementary School

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

Very friendly, efficient staff. They make the children feel comfortable, and they were thorough with the exams and cleanings.

Deb Graham, RN Shelby Hills Early Childhood Center

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

Ilundria Bardwell, RN

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

Sandy Marsh, Coordinator

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

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

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

Marlaina Reel, School Nurse

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

You are all great!

Sue Kruckman, School Nurse

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

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

Great job Big Smiles Dental!

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

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.
