Delaware School Nurse Manual
The Delaware School Nurse Manual addresses oral health services, highlighting the importance of dental health care and oral examinations, in particular for children and youth. The manual acknowledges that though some schools employ dental hygienists, in most schools, the school nurse delivers dental health education and makes appropriate referrals to dentists. The manual also provides further resources and information, including that from the Delaware Division of Public Health.
