The mobile dentists of Smile Care Ohio are visiting Indian Lake Local Schools on Thursday, April 4th and Friday April 5th. Two teams of dentists, dental assistants and x-ray technicians are set up in the ILES guidance room and spending all day examining, cleaning and applying sealant to students’ teeth. Any student in the district may visit the clinic if parents fill out the forms. Please pick up forms in the ILES or ILMS office and return as soon as possible. 

The Smile Care Ohio program is offered in schools for any student who has not had his or her teeth cleaned for 6 months. 

Parents have the option of paying a reduced rate or applying for grants to receive the service for free. Statistics show on average in Ohio elementary students without dental care missed 2 days of school due to oral health problems. 

Students who are identified as having cavities or other dental problems will get a note sent home to their parents with information on follow-up care.
