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

Manchester Avenue Elementary,

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

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

The residents are so appreciative of the care they receive. The “team” are true professionals and work extremely well together. Thank you so much for seeing the children!

Wayne Rankin, RN, DON Liberty Point Health Care RTC

This service was wonderful. I would gladly recommend it to any other program. The staff was wonderful and very helpful.

Jessica Davis, RN, RDH, Health and Community Services Manager

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

Everyone was wonderful and the dentists were friendly and professional.

Therese Gallagher, Family Nurse Practitioner

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

Blair, Registered 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

I was pleasantly surprised by the comprehensive dental services the Smile Program provided for our students. Services were rendered in a professional manner with few tears and drama. Our students genuinely liked the services and staff. I was most impressed by the manner the staff had with difficult students.

Angela Boone, Family Resource Center Coordinator

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

The dentist and assistants were awesome! Go with the flow kind of team! They worked non-stop until the job was done. Thank you for coming to our school!

Stephanie Keller, RN, BSN, School Nurse Mast Community Charter School II

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

The dentists and dental hygienists are always friendly and very patient with the students. They give the kids positive feedback on their behavior during the exam and procedures.

Tara Lovejoy, School Social Worker Morley Stanwood Elementary

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

The service was excellent. Awesome program and staff! We look forward to having Smile Programs here.

Lori Rice, RN, School Nurse

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

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

We love having you come to our school. Your staff is great!

Mandy Powell, Secretary Centennial Elementary School

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

The team is always great and very happy to be here. We love having them here!

Renee Johnson, Health Tech

I love that I can offer this program to my students and their families. Everyone within the organization is friendly and helpful making the service very easy to set up for my school. The clinical staff that treat the kids are amazingly patient and understanding, especially with my fidgety and nervous kiddos. This program exceeds all expectations!

Cara Dalton, School Nurse Hardy Elementary School

This is an excellent service for students and parents.

Tony Reece, School Finance Officer/School Records Data Management Mountain Park Elementary School

The staff was very professional and friendly, and they knew exactly what to do. No complaints on our part. Thank you for your service!

Rosario Gutierrez, School Administrative Assistant

Professional and friendly staff that are easy and understanding to work with. Overall, kids are excited when they come.

Tanya Ange, School Nurse John Small 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

It is a pleasure to work with an efficient and caring team!

Saundra L. Davis, RN, School Nurse Lincoln Elementary School

Wonderful team to work with!

Chris James, RN, School Nurse

The staff did a wonderful job this year with the elementary and middle school students! They were friendly and very efficient with their time. They treated 40 students, which I believe was a record year for us!

Andrea McGrew, District 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 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

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

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

Always a great experience!

Mike Honemann, Director

Friendly staff and very flexible. Thank you for helping our students.

Rocio de Leon, Community Liaison

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

As always, it was a pleasure having the Mobile Dentist team visit our school. Our children certainly are fortunate to have such a wonderful and beneficial opportunity!

Joanne Conn, 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

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 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

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

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

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

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 very friendly and provides a great service to our students.

Lori Bradigan, LPN Oaklyn Elementary

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

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 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 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

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
