Working Together for Healthier Kids

Healthy Smiles Lead to Happier Kids



An update from our Program Director, Dianne Powers, RDH, CPHDH on the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak can be found here. During this unprecedented time when health concerns are at a heightened level, CDN and its employees strive to be as transparent as possible. Public schools in New Hampshire are shutdown for the remainder of the school year. We hope to begin our school dental services again in the fall of 2020.


The Children's Dental Network is proud to be celebrating 27 years providing oral health prevention and education to the children in our communities!! 


The mission of the Children's Dental Network is to improve oral health for children in the Greater Derry area through education, delivery of services and facilitation of improved access to oral health services.

At Children’s Dental Network, we make kids happier and healthier by introducing them to good dental habits at an early age. Together with school districts throughout the Greater Derry and Salem areas, we make obtaining dental care easy and affordable by providing free and low-cost dental screenings, cleanings, sealants, temporary fillings and fluoride treatments during school hours. Please scroll to the bottom of this page to review and print a permission form for your student or child. 

Our educational programs give teachers the resources they need to help their students learn about good oral health and our in-school dental presentations teach them how to have a healthy smile that will last a lifetime. Most importantly, we help children become comfortable with visiting the dentist. Now that’s really something to smile about!

Whether you’re a parent, an educator, a sponsor or a dentist, we look forward to working together with you! Also, don’t forget to brush and floss every day and visit the dentist for regular check-ups – a healthy smile will last a lifetime!
