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

Manchester Avenue Elementary,

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

Karen Richardson, RN, CHN Wheatley Education Campus

The staff is very friendly and provides a great service to our students.

Lori Bradigan, LPN Oaklyn Elementary

Smile New York is a wonderful in-school dental prevention program. Our students were engaged and excited about the dentist visiting. It was beneficial to have so many of our students receive dental health services and walk out with clean and treated teeth. The dental staff was caring, supportive, and professional. Our overall experience was great!

Audra Jimenez, Director of Counseling and Student Support Services

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 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

Dental staff were helpful and pleasant! The office staff remarked about how self sufficient you all were in gathering the necessary students and contacting parents! Thank you!

Jessica G., District 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

The team was excellent with the kids, and they met and exceeded my expectations by doing everything they promised. The teachers also agree that this is a valuable service that we should continue to offer. We’re looking forward to making this a permanent program and growing it in the future.

Dan Goetz, RN, Nurse

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

Bridget Montgomery, Case Manager

It’s always a pleasure having your dental team come to our school, they are always pleasant, professional and nice to the children.

Susie Rolando, Health Clerk

Excellent service to our students!

Dr. Beverley Martin, Assistant Principal

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

The staff that comes to our school is excellent. They are so good with the kids and our teachers.

Barbara Gray, Clinic Aide Northwestern Elementary School

The staff is warm, and they treat the kids and staff with respect. We love to have the visits from the dental staff.

Elizabeth Shook, Lead School Nurse Madison County

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

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

Jennifer Vaughn, District 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

It’s a great service, and we love having the dental team come.

Brenda Hanson, LVN

We loved the team that came! They truly sought to serve kids well, and worked hard to make sure everyone received excellent serve.

Kalie George, Executive Director

Friendly staff and great service. A wonderful program that supports our community with a great smile.

Nicolas Perez, Principal Cheltenham Elementary

Thank you for your services. Unfortunately, some of our children would not receive the dental attention that is needed if it was not for your program.

Vicki Haney, LPN Peters Elementary School

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

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

The staff worked extremely well with our 3-5 year old students and our autistic students. They are always pleasant, well organized, and efficient!

Mary Tolmie, MSN, RN, CSN, School Nurse

I always appreciate timeliness and professionalism, and that is exactly what your service provided for my center.

V. Carter, Administrator Ready 2 Learn Childcare Center

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

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

Sandy Marsh, Coordinator

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

It’s so refreshing to continue to work with such passionate, caring, professionals! The staff are always patient and helpful. They do whatever they can to provide quality dental care to as many students as possible.

Lisa A. Knight, RN, Registered School Nurse

Efficient, friendly, flexible, and prompt! The hygienist came in to greet the office staff first thing in the morning. A few times I walked by the room where they were set up, and for a mobile unit it is an extremely professional set up. It was a pleasant experience for the staff and children. Thank you for a wonderful service to the community and children.

Catherine Aldrich, Administrative Assistant

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

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

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

Bonnie Rink, Health Aide

This is a very important program for public schools!

Betty Girsch, RN, School Nurse

Extremely friendly staff, and the students loved their toothbrushes!

Susan Avery, Principal Braceville Elementary School

I have worked with Smile Programs for several years now and can’t say enough good about your program.

Carol Halpin, School Nurse

Having the dental team here at the high school for a day was wonderful. Thank you!

Patty Skinner, School Nurse Trimble High 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

Outstanding service and care for my students, and a great team to work with!

Lisa Fox, School Nurse

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 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.

LaTonya Maxwell, Family Support Counselor UChicago Charter School - Donoghue Campus

Staff arrived promptly, set up quickly, and were conscientious about not having students out of class any longer than necessary. They were very friendly and very professional.

Tracy McKinney, LPN, School Nurse Seymour Middle School

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

Mobile Dentists far surpassed my expectations. The staff was warm and gentle with the students, while being highly efficient and effective. I was quite impressed with their speedy set up and compact equipment. Our school is very old, and they were able to utilize a very small space to turn into the “dentist office”. In addition, their office staff took care of everything in terms of paperwork. They verified insurance, contacted parents for more information, and supplied families with grant paperwork. Thank you Mobile Dentists for a wonderful experience; I know we will be seeing you again next year.

Christina Bancroft, BSN, CSN-NJ, 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

Excellent service! Thank You!

Kathleen Perry, RN, School Nurse

The team was amazing, and they displayed remarkable patience and kindness to each student. They saw 30 children in our school, some who had never been to the dentist before. The process was well organized, resulting in minimal disruption to the school day. Many thanks!

Summer Piller, School Nurse Westwood Hills Elementary School

Your program is wonderful, and has been coming to my school approximately 4 years. When asked about the program, I recommend it to all NNPS nurses.

Pat Inge, RN, School Nurse

The staff was always wonderful, very professional, and kind to everyone. I wouldn’t have any other business come to my school to provide this service. Your company beats my expectations by a mile! I was able to call (daily almost) and get the answers I needed with no hassle. Suzie was wonderful, very attentive, very knowledgeable, and just overall wonderful! The past two years have been great with the Mobile Dentist Program, and I look forward to many more.

Jacilyn Habura, Secretary/Health Aide
