Many parents are caught off guard by the amount and timing of school forms. Dental form requirements for Libertyville and the state of Illinois are no different. They can be tricky. You will need a dentist to fill out dental exam forms if your child is entering Kindergarten, Second Grade, or Sixth Grade in the Libertyville School District at Adler Park, Butterfield, and Copeland Manor Schools, Highland Middle School and Rockland Schools. They are required to be turned in to school before the end of the school year by May 15th. Forms and information can be found at the links below. K, 2nd and 6th grades grades are important milestones in the tooth development with most children starting to get their six year (first) molars around the time of kindergarten and their 12 year (second) molars around the 6th grade.

For the past 35 years the family practice of Libertyville Dental Associates has seen and completed hundreds of school dental exams for pediatric patients. With a lack of a pediatric dentist in Libertyville we have created a child friendly environment to help your kids feel as comfortable as possible.

What to expect? If this is your child’s first visit to the dentist the most important aspect of the appointment is making sure that they have a fun and pleasant experience where development milestones can be checked. Home care is critical to a lifetiime of healthy teeth and we are able to help start your children on an easy home program that will prevent cavities.
