Miles of Smiles, Ltd. provides preventive dental services (exam, cleaning, fluoride varnish, and sealants if needed) at our school to all students in grades Pre-K through 8th who return a completed parent consent form.

Licensed, experienced dentists, hygienists, and assistants from southern Illinois will come to our school to provide these services. For those in Kindergarten, 2nd and 6th grades, this visit satisfies the mandatory dental examination required in the state of Illinois.

In addition to offering our services to students who are covered by Medicaid, Kid Care, and grants, our services are also offered to students who have private insurance if all the correct information is provided in order for the insurance provider to be billed.

It is Miles of Smiles goal to help each student find a dental home. If your child already sees a dentist regularly, please continue with them for routine exams and x-rays. Our services are offered but are not intended to replace dental care your child is already receiving. If you choose to use Miles of Smiles and need help finding follow-up care, we have a network of dentists who contract with us.
