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

Manchester Avenue Elementary,

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 services were absolutely beneficial for my school, and assisting my families with obtaining the services needed. I also thought the tooth brushing demonstration was great!

Stephanie L. Thomas, CHN/RN

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

Shelly Bird, Secretary Creekview Elementary School

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

Jennifer Vaughn, District Nurse

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

Ms. Klein, School Nurse

Very flexible with our special needs students!

Margie Rossander, RN, School Nurse Canterbury Elementary

The mobile dentist provided excellent service to the students at Southeast Elementary. The team was very kid friendly, and made the process fun for the kids. Everyone walked out with a smile! We look forward to next year.

Araceli McBeth, Health Aide Southeast Elementary School

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

Bonnie Rink, Health Aide

Wonderful team to work with!

Chris James, RN, School Nurse

The Big Smiles dental services were excellent. The dental team worked very efficiently and diligently when providing services to our students. I was impressed with the services provided to students on the spot in the school setting.

Remona C. Sands, Family Resource Center 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 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

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

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

This is an excellent service for students and parents.

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

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

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

Professional, friendly, and wonderful service! That’s my experience with Mobile Dentists.

Johnny Raynor, BSN, RN, EMT-P, CSN, School Nurse

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

Susie was wonderful to work with in coordinating the visit.

Ilundria Bardwell, RN

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.

Wendy Adams, LPN, Health Services Coordinator

Our parents are happy and completely satisfied with your program. They are impressed with the way your staff makes our students feel at ease.

Dolores Ramirez, Community Liasion

Extremely friendly staff, and the students loved their toothbrushes!

Susan Avery, Principal Braceville Elementary School

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

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

The staff were very efficient and organized, and the program ran smoothly.

Cynthia H. Morgan, Principal Edgemont Primary

Always a great experience!

Mike Honemann, Director

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

You are all great!

Sue Kruckman, School Nurse

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

Nicolas Perez, Principal Cheltenham Elementary

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

Rocio de Leon, Community Liaison

This is a very valuable service to the student’s of Carroll County. The staff is very professional and work very well with the school and scheduling. It is a great program. I am so happy to have this available for our students.

Lisa Frost, Head School Health Services 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

Thank you for your excellent service to our school community!

Becky Drummond, Elementary Principal

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

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

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

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

Charlotte Morris, 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

Thank you for working with our students! Your staff has always been adaptable to the conditions at our school, with a friendly, professional manner. The students who are seen are appreciative of the care you provide. Thanks so much!

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

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

This is a very important program for public schools!

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.
