Mobile Dental Clinic Coming
to South Salem

Dear Falcon Families, 

We are happy to announce that the Smile Virginia program is bringing a mobile dental clinic to South Salem on Friday, May 5th. The clinic will give access to dental care from licensed professionals during the school day that includes a complete dental exam, x-rays, a cleaning, and in some cases restorative care such as fillings.

The clinic is open to students insured by Medicaid or private insurance, and a reduced rate is offered for students who are uninsured. A handout with information about the clinic and a registration form will be sent home to all students at school sometime after Spring Break. Additionally, families may access information and registration by following this link www.MySchoolDentist.com. Please note, online registration is encouraged. 

If you have additional questions, please contact our school nurse at 540-387-2478 or abryant@salem.k12.va.us


Thank you, 

Laura M. James, Principal
