    Kids Club


    The Cavity Free Kids Club is a program designed to reward and congratulate children between the ages of 0 to 17 years of age who are Cavity Free at their 6-month dental check-up or recall appointment. Once the dentist has completed their check of the patient’s teeth they along with their dental assist or hygienist will award the child with a special certificate deeming them Cavity Free and the child can write their name on a special tooth for display on our Cavity Free Kids Club board located in the lobby of each office.



    The Middle School Program was designed to discuss nutrition, hygiene, and stress on an adolescent level.  Cavities are the #1 preventable disease in children, and nutrition and hygiene play a huge roll in their prevention. It has been reported that kids as young as 12 vape.  To prevent this luring pandemic – our team visits schools and presents an educational PowerPoint and has open conversations to provide nutrition and hygiene tips and other ways to combat stress.

    Missouri Preventive
    services Program


    The Missouri PSP Program is designed by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. This program allows dental offices within communities to team up with local school districts to provide free exams and apply fluoride varnish to students. This is a completely free program provided by the state and free screenings provided by Compass Health Network staff. The Preventive Services Program is a great referral source for the school districts and families serviced, so we can better care for the children in our communities.
