News from Ottawa Public Health

Dental Screening

DID YOU KNOW?  57% of 6-11 year olds in Ottawa have a cavity or had one in the past.

Every year, dental hygienists from Ottawa Public Health offer free dental screenings at all schools.  This program helps children with urgent dental needs and works with families to help them see a dentist.  Only children with dental problems will go home with a letter.  It is important to return the pink letter to Ottawa Public Health or to contact the dental hygienist.

Schools will inform parents which classes are chosen for the dental screening.  If your child’s class is not selected, but you wish for the dental hygienist to see him/her, please advise the school.

If your child missed the school dental screening, visit www.ottawa.ca/dental to view the calendar for community dental screenings.  These dental screenings are free and open to everyone.

The dental screening does not replace dental visits with your family dentist.

For more information visit www.ottawa.ca/dental or contact Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744.
