Super Smile Savers Program


The Super Smile Savers Program aims to reduce the prevalence of dental caries in Harris County by providing preventive care in the form of oral health education, oral assessments, fluoride varnish applications and referrals as needed. We believe providing education to prevent disease development is a greater public service than simply treating oral disease once it presents itself. The strength of the program lies in its preventive approach to dental health, along with age-specific oral health education to develop healthy habits early on. Our first mobile dental clinic events began in October 2014. To date, thousands of underserved children in Harris County have benefited from our preventive dental services at no cost to their families or schools.

Treatment is good. Prevention is better. Early prevention is best.

Program Components

  1. Dental Health Promotion (Pre-K to 5th Grade)Preventive oral health education is delivered to students to enhance their understanding of how to care for their teeth and also reinforce positive and sustainable dental health practices.
  2. Early Preventive Care (6 months to 6 years) - Oral health assessments and fluoride varnish applications are provided to consented students by a Registered Dental Hygienist.
  3. Referrals and Case ManagementStudents who receive early preventive care will be sent home with a copy of their assessment form and a referral if needed. Patient navigation and case management are offered to those who need assistance accessing additional dental services.
