by a dental hygienist at no cost to you through oral health services for children, HEALTHY
SMILES, HEALTHY KIDS, provided by Northern Valley Indian Health, Inc. The purpose of the
screening is to check your child’s teeth for tooth decay and other dental problems.
Families, as you prepare your children for returning to school, the California Department of Education (CDE) and I urge you to add the COVID-19 vaccine to your child’s back-to-school checklist. By getting yourself and your eligible children vaccinated, it will ensure their safety and give you peace of mind.
