Smile Check Wants to Connect with You Virtually!

In past years, the Delaware Smile Check Program has enjoyed completing dental screenings at schools across the state and performing preventive services for students on-site. This year, however, we may not get to see everyone’s smiling face right away, as the COVID-19 pandemic has rearranged plans for back to school. If your school can’t offer in-person dental screenings at this time, don’t worry! There are still lots of things to smile about.

The Smile Check Virtual Program is being offered to students who have Medicaid or CHIP, or who do not have dental insurance. Sign up today, by completing the form below.
