We hear from schools that these are the most effective ways to communicate with parents:
Back-To-School / Registration Packs
Back-To-School is the best time to get parents to complete the dental permission form. Be sure to include the dental permission form with your Back-To-School or Registration Packet at the beginning of each school year.
Kindergarten Round-Up – Don’t forget to put the dental permission form in your kindergarten round-up/enrollment packet. We can supply you with the consent forms before the beggining of the year to get you ready for the next calender year's visit.
Banners / Signage
Be sure to post the banners provided with your forms.
IDEA – Have students decorate a wall or your door about the dentist coming to school. Take a picture and send it to us. We’d love to see how creative they are!
Parent Teacher Commitees
Parents and teacher commitees are a great way to spread the word that the dentist is coming to school.
Let us know how helpful a parent or teacher representative has been and we’ll be sure to send them a gift as our thank you.
Be sure to make announcements on your school’s PA system about the dentist coming to school.
Here are the best times to make announcements:
1. Distribution day – To remind students to bring forms home and have their parents complete, sign and return the permission forms.
2. One week AFTER distribution day – To remind students to bring the permission forms back to school and to remind teachers to return them to you.
3. Day of dental visit – Ask students to check their backpacks and teachers to check their desks.
*WE CAN STILL SEE STUDENTS WHO HAND IN A PERMISSION FORM ON THE VISIT DAY.
