Bridging Brighter Smiles, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 2012, with a passion in preventative dental services brought right into the Verona School District. Our mission is to bridge the gap in dental care and instill lifelong healthy habits in every child. We offer low to no-cost dental services that include:
Dental cleanings (every six months)
Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF)
We accept Badger Care/Forward Health! (We do not bill other private dental insurance)
Since the 2013-2014 school year, when we first started in Verona School District, we have grown to service over 600 students, in the 4k-12th grades! Tammy R, the hygienist for Verona Area School District, has been in Verona School District for over 10 years with a passion for connecting with the children and making sure they are taken care of as if they were her own, in her own community. We make multiple visits to the school throughout the academic year. To enroll your student, view our enrollment form:
If your child is enrolled in Bridging Brighter Smiles, they are also eligible for additional dental care. Bridging Brighter Smiles provides dental cleanings and preventive care by a Dental Hygienist. If you enroll via the QR code below, your child will also receive:
Exams by a dentist twice a year during school hours
X-rays of their teeth once a year during school hours
Treatment for any cavities or dental problems identified during their exam.
All treatment will be provided at the school or by local dentists in their offices. Care will be covered under the BadgerCare program or free of charge if your child has no insurance coverage.
