Reminder to parents: back-to-school dental health requirement

General Health

CONNECTICUT (WTNH) — Parents take note: you may not be aware that among the forms you are ‘requested’ to fill out at the beginning of the school year is a dental assessment.

It is really about raising awareness early that dental health plays an important role in overall health.
