An estimated 51 million school hours per year are lost because of dental-related illness.
Students ages 5 to 17 years missed 1,611,000 school days in 1996 due to acute dental problems—an average of 3.1 days per 100 students. Click here for more information.
For years school aged children in Illinois have received exams and cleanings in the school. Unfortunately this can be the only dental appointment the child gets for the year and parents are unable to get the necessary follow up care for their children. ONSITE Dental takes the next step and offers comprehensive care for their patients.
This program has been so well received by families and school officials that we are now expanding our services to more and more schools every week.
We are unique in that we bring the dental home to the patient and to the school or community center. We develop long lasting relationships with the schools and return on a regular basis so patients can develop trusting relationships with our dental staff on an ongoing basis.
