Improving children’s oral health requires a multi-faceted approach that expands beyond the clinical setting. That is why More LA Smiles has developed More LA Smiles Connections – an online, community-based, oral health intervention tool that connects children with oral health resources and services directly in their neighborhoods, with three ways to engage.
If you are a teacher, school nurse or community organization that works with children, you can request oral health resources, ranging from dental kits and educational materials to teach students about oral health care, to in-person classroom education and preventive dental screenings by a dental student or licensed professional.
If you are a licensed dental professional, a dental student or dental hygiene student, you can sign up to join the More LA Smiles Connections Community Service Network to assist with requests for in-person classroom education or screening and preventive services.
You can support More LA Smiles Connections by providing dental materials and supplies for Los Angeles children at no cost.
We will be happy to answer any questions regarding our opportunities.
Your inquiries will be directed to a More LA Smiles representative, and you will receive a response as soon as possible.
