Students Get Free Checkups at School

A local orthodontist and Campbell Middle School alumnus, Dr. Mashouf was one of the many volunteer dentists who conducted free oral health screenings on Campbell Union School District students this month. 

Pain and other adverse effects of poor oral health can interfere with academic performance. CUSD's partnerships with community based service organizations helps the district support the student wellness as its teachers focus on educating them.

With support from an El Camino Hospital grant, Campbell Union School District nurses follow up with students who receive urgent dental referrals, connecting them to local dental providers.

Santa Clara County Dental Society (SCCDS) helps our district by organizing the oral screening event as well as a Fluoride Varnish program at two of our schools.
