School – Based Dental Preventative Services
KCHD's focus is to keep the Knox County community healthy, especially the kids! In partnership with our Knox County Schools and with the consent from parents, we are able to go into schools and place sealants on children's teeth, give oral hygiene education, dental screenings and referrals to private dentists as appropriate.
These services are offered free of charge to all children in grades K – 8 at selected schools.
Schools with Title 1 eligibility are selected to receive preventive dental services offered by the School-based Dental Prevention Program. Click here for a list of 2023-2024 Target Schools.
