Life of Smiles, Oral Health Program

Oral Health - life of smiles logoPublic Health Solutions is proud of our “Life of Smiles” program. We provide dental health education and preventative services to children in Fillmore, Gage, Jefferson, Saline and Thayer counties, targeting kids aged birth to third grade . We strive to educate parents and children on healthy oral care habits, including what causes cavities and how diet can affect mouth health, and also proper brushing and flossing methods.

Our program provides oral screening and cleaning services to children and adults tenPJfKaVItd7iRmfN8k4xK8VK1250KyYk_MhQ39hC0who may be at risk for dental disease, as well as fluoride varnishes and sealants as needed. Each person screened also receives a dental care bag, which is filled with a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and educational materials. Our goal is for every child to have the right information and tools to make good oral health choices.
