School Programs

School Programs

Coastal Pediatric Dentistry offers enlightening and educational School Programs. We enjoy working with children every day and helping them maintain good oral health and beautiful smiles.

Coastal Pediatric Dentistry believes that every child deserves an education, no matter what. But did you know that according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental-related illnesses? This is just one of the many reasons we actively seek partnerships to help educate children about oral hygiene.

We offer two school programs to help teach pre-school and grade-school aged children about the importance of oral health. We work hard to make the programs fun and interactive for your students while at the same time teaching them about oral hygiene and nutrition. We will talk about teeth, "sugar bugs," brushing and flossing, healthy snacking, and what to expect when visiting the dentist. At the end of the presentation, each child will be given a dental goodie bag with a toothbrush and other dental supplies to take home.

2 School Program Options

  • Office Visit: We will schedule a time for your school/class to come to our office to meet the pediatric dentist. We will talk to the children about the importance of taking care of their teeth. The office visit can be very beneficial for young children as it familiarizes them with the dental office setting and many times gets them excited to come back for their own visit to the pediatric dentist.

  • School Visit: We will arrange for someone from our staff to visit your school/class and give a short interactive presentation to the children about their teeth, nutrition, and oral health.

We value any opportunity to improve the lives of children in our community. Our programs are and will always be free of charge and most important, FUN! If you are interested in scheduling a dental presentation for your school or class, or if you have any questions about these programs or other possible presentations, please contact:
