New Jersey Smiles services are provided by a trained PCP or PCP medical staff (medical doctor, DO, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant) who refers children through age 5 to the program. The New Jersey Smiles Dental Program requires that children must have an established dental home by the age of 2.
Dental screening by a PCP includes monitoring of tooth eruption, occlusion pattern, presence of caries, oral infection, and referral to a primary care dentist (PCD) for a full exam and treatment. New Jersey Smiles PCPs provide dental risk assessments, fluoride varnish application, anticipatory guidance, and a referral to a PCD for a full exam and treatment.
