Your generous donation to Just Kids Dental helps children of low income families receive much needed preventive dental services & education.

Just Kids Dental relies upon the generosity of supporters to win the fight against pediatric dental disease – the number one preventable disease facing children today.

Why we serve?

  • Simply put, many children do not own a toothbrush or have never
    been to a dentist
  • 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental related
    illnesses
  • Children in pain experience difficulty concentrating and learning
    in school
  • Children with good oral health avoid other health issues later in
    life
  • School-based dental care removes cost, time, and transportation
    barriers to care so children can easily access needed preventive dental
    services in order to stay healthy

What do we do at schools?

  • Oral Hygiene Instruction
  • Oral Health Screening
  • Dental Cleaning
  • Fluoride Treatment (helps keep teeth strong and prevents cavities)
  • Sealants (a thin, plastic coating that is painted on the chewing
    surfaces of the back teeth to form a shield over the tooth to prevent cavities)
  • Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Floss

How can you help?

  • Your generous donation, large or small, is a significant factor in
    helping Just Kids Dental fight dental disease for underserved Lake, St. Louis,
    Carlton and Douglas County children
