Head Start Screenings
Our dentists conduct annual dental screenings for the children of the Head Start Program at Palm State1853 College. These screening exams allow the Head Start Program to refer only those students in need of dental treatment services to dental providers, thus saving the program the cost of unnecessary examinations.
