Preventative Oral Health Services:

Good oral health is necessary for good overall health. Poor oral health is a risk factor for:

  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Dementia
  • Diabetes
  • Dental disease
  • Cancer
  • Heart/Lung Disease
  • Poor school performance/missed school days

Preventative oral care is essential for reducing dental disease. ELVPHD’s Smile in Style Program offers preventative oral health services including:

  • Oral health screenings
  • Fluoride varnish
  • Dental Sealants
  • Oral health education

Smile in Style


Services are provided by a Public Health Authorized Dental Hygienist at child care centers, Head Start programs, pre-schools, and schools. The services are provided within the facilities regardless of dental insurance status. Our goal is to prevent tooth decay by getting young children started early with good oral health habits. Smile in Style is a donation-based program and currently has the opportunity to have any donations matched dollar-for-dollar by an Anonymous Fund of Nebraska Community Foundation.


One of our public health authorized hygienists helping to educate children on the importance of healthy teeth.


During this past program year, our Smile in Style program provided preventative dental services to over 1700 children! 13% of participants were referred to a dental provider due to possible dental decay. 46% of participants indicated they were not receiving regular dental care.
