    The PA Department of Health requires that all children in Kindergarten, 3rd, and 7th grade have a dental examination.  Your child's dentist may perform the exam or the school dentist may complete it at school.  Believing that regular examinations by the family dentist are essential for the care of the teeth, you are encouraged to have your child examined by your own dentist.  If this is done, please have a report sent to the school.  If you have not provided a report when the school dentist is scheduled in the fall, a letter will be sent home from the nurse.  In the letter, you can indicate whether you will be completing the exam privately or give permission for a school exam.  The school dental exam only includes an examination; no dental cleaning, X-rays, or treatment is provided.
