Free public dental care
All children students can access this free dental care through the NSW Health Primary School Mobile Dental Program. The program will be delivered by experienced NSW Health staff, who will be using a combination of fully equipped dental vans and portable dental equipment set up on our school grounds here at Scotts Head.
Where will the program be available?
The program is starting at SHPS on Monday 6 March. Parent Information and Consent Pack about the program will be sent out. Please fill them out as soon as possible and return to the school.
