Toothache Behind Him, Student Can Excel in School

Jake, a middle school student, was suffering from a severe toothache. Because there was no documentation of a dental home or insurance coverage, the school nurse contacted his parent to see if Healthy Learners could help. Jake’s parent completed the Healthy Learners consent forms and returned them promptly to the school nurse. Healthy Learners scheduled an appointment with a local dental care provider and the parent transported the child the next day for treatment. With the tooth properly treated and the pain gone, Jake has been able to concentrate in class and is achieving academic success.
