Brush. Brush. Smile!® is coming to Hambright Elementary School this FALL!
Since its debut in fall 2004, Brush. Brush. Smile!® has provided over 2.5 million dollars worth of free dental care and oral health education to more than 16,000 children in all 16 Lancaster County school districts.
The most visible component of the program is the two 40-foot mobile dental clinics, also known as the “Brush Brush Buses.” Each “Bus” offers all of the amenities of the most modern dental office, including a full-time dental team complete with dentist, dental hygienist, and two dental assistants. Once on board, qualified children receive a full range of free dental care including exams, x-rays, cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, extractions, and fillings. Designed with a welcoming, warm environment for children in mind, the Brush Brush Bus promises every visit will be a positive one.
The Brush Brush Bus is scheduled to visit Hambright Elementary School in November. Students who will be eligible to receive care are students who:
*Are currently enrolled in PA Medicaid Plan
*Meet income guidelines and are without dental insurance
PLEASE NOTE that an application will be sent home to every student in grades kindergarten through 6th grade sometime this fall.
Look for more information to come!!!
Any questions please call the health room at 393-3818 ext 4.
