Education

We believe that the children of our community deserve a strong education on health & how to care for themselves. All children and their families dream of a life of good health and we want to empower them to live their dreams.

Our curriculum is based on science, nutrition and safety. Each classroom receives four hands-on lessons each year taught by the very staff who serve them in their onsite clinic. This fosters trusting relationships with a health care provider and helps to allay fears of dental treatment.

Extending our education to the greater community of parents and staff is a goal. By having a regular presence at open houses, community meetings, festivals and conferences, we engage families. Families consider Ready Set Smile a resource.

Data collection includes assessing the oral health literacy of students over time. Pre and post year quizzes are given for selected grades.
