What do the categories on the Student Report Form mean?
- See your dentist as needed for a regular dental visit: Your child did not have obvious tooth decay or other dental problems. This limited dental evaluation is not a comprehensive examination and does not take the place of your child’s regular dental visit. We recommend continuing your regular dental visits with your dentist to receive a routine dental check-up.
- See your dentist as soon as possible for treatment of cavities or other dental problems: During the limited dental evaluation provided by Miles of Smiles-Laredo, a cavity or other dental problem was seen by the dentist. Please visit your regular dentist as soon as possible to address these dental problems. If you do not have a regular dentist or need help finding a dentist in your area, send us a message using the Contact Us page.
- See you dentist IMMEDIATELY for urgent dental care: During the dental screening, the Miles of Smiles-Laredo dentist found an URGENT dental problem that needs to be addressed immediately. Typically, these issues are very serious and can include dental infection that is causing your child pain. It is recommended that you follow-up immediately with your regular dentist. A Miles of Smiles-Laredo case manager will contact the parent or guardian to help you to address these urgent dental problems. If you do not have a regular dentist or need help finding a dentist in your area, you can send us a message using the Contact Us page.
