Tooth Truck Coming to Republic Schools
We are pleased to announce that the Tooth Truck will be visiting our school very soon (May 4th-May 26th). The Tooth Truck provides comprehensive treatment from cleanings and x-rays to repairing cavities at no charge for qualifying families. Requirements for being seen and treated on the Tooth Truck are:
-Between the ages of 3 and 14 years
-Qualify for the free and reduced lunch program at school
-Cannot be an established patient of a local dentist
-Cannot have private dental insurance
-Must complete a Tooth Truck application form
The Tooth Truck treats Medicaid-eligible and uninsured children. Children seen last year are not eligible for a routine check-up but should apply if there is a new dental concern. Please contact the nurse's office at 417-735-3720 if you are interested in completing an application form. The Tooth Truck staff will be scheduling students soon.
