Illinois School Dental Exam Form | O’Fallon, IL
Lake Pointe Dental Group conducts school dental exams, which are required by the State of Illinois for children attending either public or private schools. Children in kindergarten, second grade, sixth grade, and ninth grade must submit an Illinois Proof of School Dental Examination Form after having an exam prior to May 15 during their school year, or show proof that an exam is scheduled within 60 days of May 15.
In prior years, exams were only required for children in kindergarten, second, and sixth grades. In 2019, the state began requiring ninth grade exams as well. Report cards of students who do not undergo an exam may be withheld, according to the law.
Working with a skilled team of hygienists, Dr. Richard Greiff and Dr. Harold Bean will provide comprehensive examinations and complete the forms required by the State of Illinois for entry into elementary, middle and high school. Download the Illinois School Dental Form here.
When Should I Bring My Child to the Dentist?
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommends taking your child to the dentist after their primary teeth erupt. Early childhood is the time of life when good habits – including proper diet and hygiene habits – are developed. Dr. Greiff and Dr. Bean and the Lake Pointe Dental Group can guide both you and your child in fostering healthy routines.
Lake Pointe Dental will also provide preventative dental care, including oral exams, teeth cleaning, fluoride treatments, sealants, and early assessment for potential problems with crowding, grinding, or improper bite as your child grows.
Dentistry for Children | Childhood Dental Problems
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), cavities, also called caries, are among the most common childhood issues in our country. Left untreated, they can cause pain, as well as problems with speaking, eating, and even learning.
Lake Pointe Dental offers a full range of restoration and resin and amalgam fillings. Dr. Greiff and Dr. Bean will recommend preventative measures and care for injuries to teeth and gums, starting your child on a path to a lifetime of healthy smiles.
