Information for Parents

We're here to help!

CariedAway focuses on bringing dental care to children in 51 NYC DOE schools.

Like you, your child’s oral health is a top priority to us.

We know:

  • Cavities on children’s teeth can grow very fast causing pain and infection
  • The pain and infection can make it difficult for children to concentrate in class
  • Untreated cavities can lead to lower standardized test scores and increase school absences

Our dental care is safe, effective, and is provided at no cost to families.

  • No spray. No spatter. No shots. No drilling. No pain.
  • Eliminates almost 80% of cavities
  • Takes as little as 10 minutes, two times per year.

CariedAway care includes:

  • Oral screening
  • Tooth-brushing and flossing instruction
  • Prevention and treatment: toothbrush cleaning, topical fluoride treatments (fluoride varnish, silver diamine fluoride), sealants, and temporary fillings
  • Referral to a dentist for further care, if needed.
  • All children are eligible to participate, regardless of insurance coverage or immigration status.
  • There is no out-of-pocket expense. If a child does not have insurance, our program will cover the cost of care. The program will charge Medicaid to ensure long-term sustainability.
