The mobile dentists of Smile Care Ohio will be back to care for students at Indian Lake Local Schools this fall.  The teams of dentists, dental assistants and x-ray technicians will set up at ILMS on Monday, September 24th and at ILES on Tuesday, September 25th. They will examine, clean and apply sealant to the teeth of any student who signs up. 
The Smile Care Ohio program is offered in schools for any student who has not had his or her teeth cleaned for 6 months. Any student in the district may visit the clinic if parents fill out the forms. Paperwork will be sent home with students and is available in each school's main office. Parents have the option of paying a reduced rate or applying for grants to receive the service for free. Statistics show on average in Ohio elementary students without dental care missed 2 days of school due to oral health problems. Students who are identified as having cavities or other dental problems will get a note sent home to their parents with information on follow-up care.
