Oral health care delivery within a school setting is a rapidly growing avenue for ensuring that all students have equal access to care. As oral health awareness grows, school administrators and school nurses are finding multiple options when seeking an oral health program to provide services to their student body.
The Michigan Dental Association has developed this guide to help identify the differences that can exist within oral health care programs. These can include what types of oral health care is being provided, to the specific services delivered, and even what space requirements will be needed by oral health programs when traveling into a school.
This document was designed to help guide schools into choosing the type of oral health program that will best meet the needs of their students and communities.
