Advantage Dental Screenings - Tuesday, Dec 8th, 2020
PARENTS - If you have not already returned the consent form, please see the attached information and return page 1 (or 2) to the school.
Here is a message from our Regional Community Expanded Practice Dental Hygienist:
As everything is this year- our services will be performed in a different manner than in the past, in order to keep us and all students safe and meet new COVID-19 guidelines. The Oregon Department of Education does allow dental providers in the schools in their guidance document Ready Schools, Safe Learners. We still are offering all of the same services, but here are a few major changes that you would notice:
· Advantage Dental staff will be wearing more PPE (full gown and face shield) and changing it between each class to avoid cross-contamination.
· Students will be screened 1 at a time, right outside of the classroom door.
· Sealants will be provided in a manner where no aerosols are created (won’t be spraying any air or water in the child’s mouth)
