Required Oral Health Assessment

Beginning in the 2024-2025 school year, all children in Michigan enrolling in their first year of school are required to have an oral health assessment (dental screening) before starting school [Public Health Code Act 368 Section 333.9316]. Similar to the required vision and hearing screening(s), we are working with the Health Department and Smiles on Wheels to coordinate a date at the beginning of the 2024-2025 schoo lyear for dental assessments. An explanation of the new requirement and frequently asked questions will be in our Kindergarten registration packet for the upcoming year, along with a Kindergarten Oral Health Assessment Form.
