Funded primarily by the Oregon Community Foundation (OCF), Ready to Smile is a free program offered at public schools throughout Coos and Curry Counties. This program offers preventive dental services for children in grades 1, 2, 6, and 7. Most services take place at the schools. Ready to Smile also helps match students with dental services available in the community. 

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
