The Children’s Dental Practice will be offering free dental screenings for families with children entering kindergarten.
Screenings are open to families throughout Riverside County, and no insurance is required.
Per California law, children are required to have a dental screening by May 31 of their first year in public school.
Parents must present an Oral Health Assessment Form, signed by a dentist, when registering their child for school.
“Required dental screenings are visual examinations and do not require the use of x-rays”, says Ruth Bol, DDS, of The Children’s Dental Practice. “Tooth decay is the most chronic childhood disease, caused by bacteria in the mouth. These screenings ensure that children are ready for a pleasant and productive day with their teachers.”
Upcoming screening dates will be held from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday Apr. 15 and Monday Apr. 22.
Appointments can be made by calling 951-301-9111.
Location: The Children’s Dental Practice, 27180 Newport Road, Suite 3, Menifee, CA 92584
