Local Dental Health Resources
- Supply A Smile?
Supply a Smile is a local organization associated with Canandaigua Churches in Action (CCIA), serving uninsured residents of Ontario County with free dental services for adults age 18 and older, and is limited to cleanings, fillings, and extractions. Services are provided by area dental offices. Supply A Smile is an entirely volunteer run program!
Monthly screenings (Sept–May) are the initial contact where people without dental insurance or Medicaid coverage are warmly welcomed and evaluated to assess their needs. We then refer patients to various private dental offices where the procedures are done. We are thankful for the participating dentists, hygienists, and administrative volunteers for their kindness, generosity, and donation of their time to Supply a Smile's program. Patients are seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Come early to be one of the first 20 individuals to be screened.
When...Screenings take place on the 1st Saturday of each month from 9 am - 10 am. Closed during the months of June, July, and August
Where... Supply a Smile does not have a physical office location. We are thankful to the Canandaigua Primary School staff for allowing us to use their facility for our screenings.Canandaigua Primary School Cafeteria, 90 West Gibson Street in Canandaigua, NY 14424

Lead Poisoning Prevention
- New York State Public Health Law and Regulations require health care providers to:
- Obtain a blood lead test for all children at age 1 and again at age 2;
- Assess all children ages 6 months to 6 years for risk of lead exposure at least annually as part of routine care, and obtain a blood lead test on all children found to be at risk.
- If a child has an elevated lead level, the health care provider must make certain the child has follow-up testing. Providers must also provide guidance on lead poisoning prevention, risk reduction and nutritional counseling to the parent or caregiver.
- Provide anticipatory guidance to all parents of children under six years old, as part of routine care.
- Detecting and preventing lead exposure has grown in importance with the increasing evidence that blood lead levels (BLLs) less than 10 mcg/dL in young children are associated with learning disabilities, behavior problems, and lowered intelligence.
- Health care providers should become familiar with all Public Health Law and regulations pertaining to lead poisoning risk assessment, blood lead testing, reporting, and follow-up. The most recent amendments went into effect June 20, 2009.
