Funded primarily by the Oregon Community Foundation (OCF), Ready to Smile is a no charge program offered at public schools throughout Coos and Curry Counties. This program offers preventive dental services for children in Kindergarten through 7th grade.  Ready to Smile helps match students with dental services available in their community.  Most services take place at the school.


To prevent tooth decay, children can receive:
  • dental screening and sealants (OHA Dental Sealant Program and Ready to Smile Program) Grade 1,2,6 & 7
  • fluoride supplements based on school participation
  • dental education with toothbrushes and other supplies provided
To treat dental pain and infection, children can receive:
  • care on a mobile dental van at school (The Tooth Taxi when schools are accepted. Ask your school for more information.)
  • care at a local volunteer dentist's office

Help is also available to apply for low, or no-cost health insurance for children.
