Healthy Smiles Dental Outreach Program

Our experienced Healthy Smiles team includes Massachusetts licensed dentists, hygienists, dental assistants and outreach coordinator. The Outreach services address the need for increased access to quality dental health care to children in Fall River Public Schools, pre schools, and other outreach programs. Families will receive notification of these services through your child’s school or other outreach program one to two times each year. A letter will be sent home with your child on the day of the appointment informing you of the services that were provided. If future treatment is necessary, you will receive a follow-up letter noting the treatment that is being recommended for your child.

It is recommended to see a dentist twice a year for a routine exam and cleaning.
