Carey kids can get dental services
Parents of Carey School students in first- through eighth-grade can sign their kids up for dental sealants throughout November, courtesy of the South Central Public Health District. Billing occurs through individual insurance policies, though the Oct. 31 news release from the district states that uninsured children can still be seen at clinics.
Sealants are safe coatings painted onto the chewing surfaces of back teeth, according to the news release, and protect teeth from harboring cavity-causing bacteria. Sealants will be administered by registered dental hygienists.
The hygienists will also offer fluoride varnish, a “gel-like substance” painted onto children’s teeth to reduce and/or prevent tooth decay.
Kids at Carey School were sent home with permission slips, which can also be accessed at phd5.idaho.gov.
