Brighter Smiles

Brighter Smiles is an oral health preventative service program. We have partnered with Nebraska City Public Schools to bring dental services directly to the students. Dental Days will be posted to the school calendar.

This permission slip is valid for the whole 2020-2021 school year.

Child Information

Information for every child will be kept confidential.

Already sign your child up for Dental Day but want to make a contribution? *

Already see a dentist twice a year? Great! This program is just an extra step in helping your child fight tooth decay. It does not replace seeing your dentist twice a year for X-rays and routine care.

Would you like preventative services for child? Fluoride varnish can safely be applied 4-6 times a year and can decrease further cavity development by about 38%. Applying sealants can reduce decay by up to 80%. Both fluoride varnish and sealants are safe. They are both approved by the American Dental Association and the Federal Drug Administration. *

All students PK-4th, 7th, & 10th graders are mandatory screened once a year per DHHS Nebraska School Health Screenings section 7-004.01. These screenings will be done in the FALL semester.
