What is I-Smile™?
The I-Smile™ program’s mission is to increase the number of children in Iowa with a dental home.
Children ages 0–21 as well as pregnant women.
WHEN SHOULD I FIND A DENTIST FOR MY CHILD?
By age one.
WHEN SHOULD I FIND A DENTIST IF I'M PREGNANT?
As soon as you can. A healthy mouth is essential for a healthy pregnancy!
Some of the things that I-Smile does within communities include:
- Dental screenings and applying fluoride for children
- Helping coordinate dental appointments by letting parents know what dentists will see them
- Helping find payment sources for dental care and setting up transportation.
- Promoting oral health by participating in community events, such as library reading hours, health fairs, and county fairs.
