Sacred Heart School participates in the Oral Health Impact Project. OHIP is a partner of the Archdiocese of Washington.
OHIP is a dental program that serves students at Sacred Heart School. Dentists bring mobile dental units and set up in school. The dentists will perform free dental screening and oral hygiene instruction for any student enrolled (with and without dental coverage). Students must have signed consent form & medical history form filled out completely to be enrolled in program.
In addition, OHIP will complete other services including minor fillings, x-rays, topical fluoride application, preventative sealants, or removal of infected nerve of a tooth with comprehensive coverage and consent from parent. Additional services are billed directly to insurance provider.
The dentists will keep Electronic Health Records for any student who is seen by the dentists. These records can be shared with any additional dental providers, with written consent.
Families will receive a notice of the upcoming dental exams and will receive a written report after the visit and any recommendations and referrals for additional services.
