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

Manchester Avenue 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

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 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 team was great! They do a fabulous job, and the student’s really enjoy visiting the dentist.

Paula J. McCarthy, RN, 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

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

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

Bonnie Rink, Health Aide

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

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

The team was wonderful. They worked through their lunch to fit in all my students. The students and parents were so pleased with the dental care. The delivery was organized and effective, and minimally disruptive to the school day. I can’t wait to have them at our school again.

Sarah Kupchick, RN, BSN, CSN

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

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

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!

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!

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

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

As always, we are very happy with your service. Your friendliness and professionalism is outstanding!

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

Great job Big Smiles Dental!

D. Williams, Coordinator

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

Excellent service and “bedside manner”. Every person in the dental team was awesome.

Blair, Registered 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 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

Excellent, friendly, professional staff. Works well with our special needs students. Love them all!

The mobile dentist program is always so amazing! The staff is always friendly and professional, and we are always grateful for your visit. The students are so excited when they know that the mobile dentist is coming. Thank you so much for attending our academy!

Marquita Hall, RN, 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 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 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

Friendly and professional!

Karen Sims, School 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

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

The dentist and dental staff were very kind, gentle, sweet, and patient with all our students. They arrived on time every day and were very happy to be in our school providing services to the students. They were honest, informative, and helpful. They told the students step by step what they were going to do before using any of their equipment, and asked the students if they had any questions. Their professionalism, patience, and knowledge helped the students with their fears. At the end of the visit, everyone went home with a brand new tooth brush, sticker, and copy of the work that was done on their teeth. It was a pleasure to have them!

Ximena Salvador, School Liaison

This is a wonderful service you offer to students, and is very professional and reliable. Thanks so much!

Shelly Bird, Secretary Creekview Elementary School

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

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 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

What a great program! I would encourage all schools, especially elementary schools, to try it out!

Megan Bounds, RN, Director of Health Services Lima-Brighton Elementary School

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

Great on-site team, professional, timely, and ready to assist the audience. Wonderful suggestions offered for next year’s event. Thank you again for providing screenings to the children of our participants; we greatly appreciated you joining us!

We enjoyed having Smile Pennsylvania at our school. The team provides a much needed service to the children in our school.

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!

Christine Novak, RN, BSN, School Nurse New Bern High School

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

Your staff was really kid friendly! For some children this was their first experience with the dentist and the Smile Pennsylvania dental team really gave our children excellent dental services. Stephen Girard Elementary School in Philadelphia looks forward to your visits in the future.
