OHP visits 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, Encompass, and Head Start to provide essential dental services to students who qualify. Services include exams, x-rays, cleanings and other key care.
In some schools, we have permanent spaces for kids to visit the dentist. In others, we use any available space and bring in our mobile equipment, and set up a little dental clinic. Each year we visit more than 35 schools and see nearly 4,000 kids right at school!
For our school-based visits, students will be out of class for about 30-45 minutes for a screening, x-rays, cleaning and varnishing. After the student is done, they will be given instructions to take home to their parents or guardians on further treatment needed or tips for good oral health.
Check out our resources for tools on oral health that you can use before and after OHP’s visit to your classroom.
