Next week, a Registered Dental Hygienist from the Nashoba Associated Boards of Health will be at Nissitissit to offer a dental cleaning and fluoride treatment to any student in grades 5 and 6. This will be done during the school day. This service is provided at no cost to you, as our community is a member of the Nashoba Associated Boards of Health.
This program includes cleaning and polishing teeth along with an application of fluoride. The fluoride treatment has been shown to reduce tooth decay. Most dentists recommend a dental checkup and fluoride treatment twice a year.
We hope that many families will take advantage of this valuable program. Your child may participate even if they visit their own dentist regularly. Information regarding this opportunity was sent home on a purple sheet of paper on Wednesday. Please return this form indicating whether or not you would like your child to participate. We would these forms returned as soon as possible so that we can create a schedule.
Please contact our Health Office at 978-433-0114 with any questions or concerns.
