Dental Screenings

The Flint Hills Community Health Center will be providing free dental screenings at Madison Schools on Thursday, October 13, 2016.  To comply with Kansas State Statute 72-5201, school children (K-12) should receive annual school-based dental screenings.  

KDHE screenings identify the presence of decay, previous dental experience (fillings and/or sealants), infection, swelling, and pain. Parents are notified of the screening results, and those with dental treatment needs are referred to local dentists for care. School screenings are not a substitute for an examination by a dental professional, and it is recommended that all children have a dental home that provides regular, comprehensive dental care.

To participate in the screening, no action is required. If you would like your child to receive a fluoride varnish (in addition to the screening), please complete the top portion of the attached form. If you would like to opt your child out of the screening, please complete the bottom portion of the attached form. All students will be screened unless opted out.  Please see the documents below for additional information.
