staff and child fluoride varnishQuality Care, Where Children Need It

 We provide oral health services at more than 60 school sites in Pierce County through our School-Based Oral Health Program. We provide oral health screenings, to identify decay and other dental needs. We provide sealant applications, to reduce the chances of children developing decay on their molars. We also provide fluoride varnish, to strengthen and protect teeth as they develop. Our goal is to ensure children in our community are starting their lives off with healthy mouths.

We coordinate with the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department (TPCHD) who acts as the “clearinghouse” for providers in the counties’ School-Based Oral Health program. At the bottom of this page are the districts and schools for whom we provide service. We only provide services through this program at the sites below at this time.

If your child attends one of the schools below and you would like to sign them up for our program, please complete our Parent Permission Form that will be sent home with your child. Please submit the form to your child’s school office. Please note that if our date of service for your child’s school has passed, we may not return within the school year.
