From the Saskatchewan Health Authority Dental Program: (Please direct any questions to them)
It is time again for a licensed oral health professional to provide dental screenings for students in Grade 1 and 7 during the 2018-2019 school year. The previous Provincial Dental Screening was conducted in 2013-2014. The information collected from the screening will be used to plan and develop preventive program services based on the needs of your community.
A dental screening will include the use of a small flashlight and a sterilized mouth mirror or tongue depressor. After the dental screening has been done, a letter will be sent home with your child. This screening does not replace regular check-ups at your dental office.
Grade 1 and 7 students will be bringing home a Dental Screening Information (SHA OH1) form to be completed and returned at a later date.
Your child will receive an oral health screening unless you contact us at 306-766-6331.
