Dental Health - Clinical Services

Clinical treatment, education and follow-up for children in need.

Students from selected grades in Randolph County Schools and Asheboro City Schools receive an oral health screening each year.  Those without a dentist can receive care from the health department.


   

Dental Health – Education & Screening

Our dental health staff visit all the Randolph County and Asheboro City Schools for dental screening and education of all students in kindergarten.  When a dental need is determined, dental health staff notify parents by a letter in a sealed envelope that is sent home with the student.  Dental health staff work with School Nurses to follow-up on those students referred for dental care.  The goal is for all children with a dental need to receive care and find a dental home.

            

During the screenings, students receive educational information relating to dental health, such as oral hygiene, diet, and regular visits to the dentist.  Dental Health staff also present educational programs to classrooms at other times.
