Dental Screenings

School Dental Screening Requirement

Kindergarten and ninth grade students are required to have a dental screening. Parents must provide a copy of their student’s certificate of dental screening to their school. Only the official Iowa form will be accepted.

I-Smile™ Coordinators can help families to get their children screened and to find follow-up care as needed. Call the I-Smile™ Coordinator at (563) 328-4114.
