“I’m so delighted Box Hill schools will be among the first to be visited by the Smile Squad.
This will make a world of difference to local kids and their families.”
-Paul Hamer, Member for Box Hill
We are proud to announce our part in the Smile Squad – the Victorian Government’s public school dental van service helping children prevent and manage their oral health early on. The Smile Squad launched at Box Hill North Primrary School this week, being one of the first schools state wide to get started.
The Smile Squad is designed to provide public school children with brighter smiles while helping families with the cost of dental care. All public schools in the area will eventually be serviced via our Smile Squad vans, providing free check-ups and a range of treatment options to make sure our kids have healthy teeth.
‘’Access to dental care is an issue of affordability for many families in our community, yet it’s also become harder for working parents and carers to fit in trips to the dentist.
We are happy to be a part of the solution.’’
–Ronda Jacobs, Carrington Health CEO.
The Smile Squad is a natural extension of our existing dental services including our Little Smiles Program, which provides oral health education and check-ups in Primary Schools, Kindergartens and Early Education Centers.
