School Dental Liason Program

For Dutchess County Dentists:

The DCDS has provided school nurses the opportunity to contact a local dentist if a child has a dentally related emergency. This dentist has the title of School Dental Liason for that particular school or schools.

We are always seeking additional dentists to volunteer for this valuable service, which protects our children.

All that is asked is that you allow one or more school nurses to place your phone number in her directory in case of a dental emergency at school. There is no other responsibility for the dentist other than to provide an office contact number.

Please contact DCDS Schools Chairman Dr. Tom Bloom at 917-846-8635 or send him e-mail at <> to be one of the good guys for our kids.
