This option allows participants to receive a face-to-face in-person screening from a licensed Delaware dental hygienist, at school or another participating organization. Those eligible can also receive an application of fluoride varnish, which can prevent up to a third of cavities in baby teeth. All screened get an oral health bag with age appropriate supplies and oral health education. If you don’t have a dentist, Healthy Smiles can help find one.
This option allows children or adults who are Delaware residents to be screened remotely from their location. By answering a series of questions, individuals can get recommendations, resources, and referrals based on their answers and the needs of their family. Care coordinators will help identify the habits that put the person at risk for poor oral health.
