Dental Examinations

The School Health Law requires dental examinations for children in grades K or 1, 3, and 7.  These groups were selected because they represent critical periods of growth and development in a child's life.

It is important that the school have a record of a child's dental health status.  Most children have summer dental examinations by their family dentist.  If you expect your child to have such an examination in the summer, please obtain a form from the school nurse at Claysburg-Kimmel. (forms are also available on this website) This can be done anytime before October 1.

We are recommending that these examinations be done by your dentist since he can best evaluate your child's dental health and assist you in obtaining necessary treatments and corrections.

Dr. Michael Hoover, DMD, performs dental exams at both the High School and Elementary School.  Check School Calendar for screening dates.
