Reminder: Dental Screening on October 9

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Annie Sauvé RDH, a REGISTERED DENTAL HYGIENISTwith Ottawa Public Health, will provide a dental screening using a tongue depressor on October 9, 2014, for all grades and other children as necessary. If your child’s grade is not selected, but you wish for the dental hygienist to see him/her, please advise the school. Only children identified as having dental needs will bring home a form. Follow-up school visits by the dental hygienist for individual children may be done. THIS DOES NOT REPLACE REGULAR DENTAL VISITS WITH YOUR FAMILY DENTIST.
