FHC Smiles provides on-site, school-based dental services for children Pre-K through 12th grade for school districts throughout Wyandotte County KS. These services are provided at no expense to schools or out-of-pocket cost to a child’s parent or guardian.
At FHC Smiles we understand that for low-income families concerned with providing for their children’s basic needs, trying to find a dentist can be the least of many worries. Making oral health care a priority is a challenge, especially if parents have to take time off work or drive long distances for their kids to see a dentist. In rural areas or underserved communities, the most effective way to ensure children receive dental checkups and treatments is bringing oral health care to the places kids already go (schools/community centers). It’s most important to reach young children with oral health care, because the best opportunity to prevent dental disease is from the time kids get their first tooth to five years old. Portable Dental Care eliminates transportation concerns and other barriers to accessing preventive services and treatment.
