Children age 3 to 16 can receive free dental exams this Saturday, October 7 from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Marquette School of Dentistry. Sponsored by the Milwaukee Public Schools Head Start Office, services will include dental screenings, fluoride treatments, oral hygiene education, and limited emergency services if needed. A parent or guardian must accompany children who attend.
Appointments are not needed and transportation is available for current MPS Head Start families. For questions or to reserve transportation, please contact your family partnership associate or call (414) 252-0350.
Dental pain is a leading cause of missed school days for children. Dental care at an early age can help children learn good habits and keep their teeth healthy throughout their lifetimes.
Marquette School of Dentistry is located at 1801 W. Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee. Families should enter from the south side of the building.
