Midgets Teeth are Squeaky Clean!

Story image 1_0


For the past week, you may have noticed a large truck sitting in front of the Elementary. This truck is a new state-of-the-art dental truck owned by the Northeast Missouri Health Council located in Kirksville, MO. Our school partnered with the Health Council to bring dental services to our students. On October 3rd, 2017 we held a school-wide Dental Screening Preventative Services Program (PSP) sponsored by the Missouri State Department of Health and Senior Services. During this event, 398 student’s teeth were examined by a licensed Dental Hygienist and fluoride was applied to help prevent decay. We also used this event as a “screening” process to identify students who needed dental work done. Dr. Jordan Rains, DDS and her team saw 26 patients between October 24th and November 1st with a total of 58 visits in the new truck. Services provided included:

  • Routine exam and cleaning

  • Sealants (Protective film painted on tooth surfaces)

  • Fillings

  • Crowns

  • Pulpotomy (Root canal on baby teeth)

  • Extraction (Pulled tooth)

We are extremely fortunate to have access to this kind of service! The kids especially loved watching the T.V.s in the ceilings while their dental work was being done!
