Children's Dental Services (CDS)
JAJ has an on-site full service dental office.
Dental disease is the most common, chronic childhood illness; over 51 million hours of school time are lost in the U.S. annually due to dental-related illness. CDS targets kids who are not being served and brings dental care directly to them in the school, where they are comforted by familiar surroundings. CDS’ portable dental care is a convenient, affordable, efficient and cost-effective mobile oral health care program that allows us increase access to care while reducing barriers such as transportation and financial hardship. Dental care at school may include exams, x-rays, cleanings, fluoride treatment, sealants, fillings, crowns, extractions and other treatments as needed during regular school hours. If you would like your child to receive dental care or if you are able to fill out this form as an adult (18 years or older), please fill out this form and return it to school. Forms: English, Hmong, Somali, Spanish.
CDS’ highly skilled staff is exceptionally well equipped to serve families from culturally diverse backgrounds. Most CDS staff members themselves are bi- or multilingual, together speaking numerous languages, including American Sign Language, Cambodian, Dingo, Farsi, French, Hindi, Hmong, Karen, Korean, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Somali, Spanish, Swahili, Ukrainian, Urdu, and Vietnamese.
CDS accepts all insurance and offers a sliding scale for income eligible families. Check out our eligibility page for more information.
