Del Mar Union School District (DMUSD) has teamed up with The Super Dentists to teach families about a California law requiring children entering kindergarten to receive a dental screening before they start school. “Cavities indicate a bacterial imbalance, which can be a sign of serious health issues,” said Dr. Kami Hoss, Co-founder and CEO of The Super Dentists. “Poor oral health can impact a child’s oral and facial growth and development, confidence and psychological health, and long-term physical health and even longevity.”

DMUSD welcomes 750 to 1,000 new families each year, many of which are new to California and the dental screening law. The Super Dentists hope to educate local families about the importance of good oral health and help them comply with the law. “The Super Dentists is only the sixth corporate entity the district has chosen to officially partner with, because of their longtime commitment to San Diego,” said DMUSD Assistant Superintendent Jason Romero.
