Mandatory Dental Exams

All Illinois children in kindergarten, second, and sixth grades are required to have a dental examination by May 15, 2009. The dental examination must be completed by a licensed dentist and done within 18 months of the May 15 deadline. Children may apply for a waiver from this requirement if they demonstrate an undue burden or a lack of access to a dentist.
The 'Proof of School Dental Examination Form' and the 'Dental Examination Waiver Form' are uniform for statewide use and are available on the IDPH website, www.idph.state.il.us. The dentist or other organizations/agencies may link to the website to access the forms.
Written statements from the dental office for exams scheduled within 60 days after May 15th will be accepted. The appointment must be kept and the student must present proof of a completed examination at the beginning of the next school term.
No child will be kept out of school due to this requirement.
