Don’t forget health histories for back-to-school

September 1, 2021

Kids heading back to schoolGoing Back-to-School Can be Hard

And not just for the kids! Parents end up with long to-do lists including trying to remember all the new items their kids need this year – from glue sticks and notebooks to colored pencils and health histories.

Dentists rely on yearly health histories for your child to be able to provide the best treatment possible. A lot can change in 12 months, and it’s always good to keep your medical providers in the loop.

It’s easy to forget about updating health history forms until you take your kids to the doctor or dentist. By doing it at the beginning of the school year, you could get your child set up for OHP’s School-Based Program and getting dental care right at school.

OHP School-Based Dental Visits

We visit schools in the Ashwaubenon, De Pere, Denmark, Green Bay, Howard-Suamico, Pulaski and West De Pere School Districts as well as Green Bay Area Catholic Education (GRACE) schools to provide essential dental services. If your kids are not yet old enough for elementary school, we also stop by Encompass, Head Start and other daycares.

One of the nice things about our School-Based Programs is that you don’t need to take time off of work or pull your kids out of school to see the dentist. We bring the dentist right to your kids! But in order to do that, we need updated forms yearly.

Don’t forget your kid’s health history forms.

So this year while you are finishing up the seemingly endless back-to-school to-do list, don’t forget to update your child’s health history form. Our forms can be updated right online, or by printing the form out and sending it back to your child’s teacher. Then when we visit your child’s school, we can take care of their teeth, taking one more thing off your to-do list!
