Naperville Dental Practices Remind Parents of Important Illinois Back-to-School Law

By: innovativeorthocenters
NAPERVILLE, Ill. - Aug. 3, 2022 - PRLog -- Naperville, IL – Illinois law requires kids to have a dental exam performed by a licensed dentist before entering kindergarten, second, sixth and ninth grades in public, private and parochial schools.

"Every child deserves to enter school free of dental pain or problems," says Illinois State Dental Society chairman, Dr. Randall Markarian. "Unfortunately, tooth decay and dental disease is a leading cause of decreased school performance and lost school days."

As fall approaches, Innovative Pediatric Dentistry and Innovative Orthodontic Centers, both part of the Innovative Dental Partners family, remind parents to schedule this important back-to-school check-up.

At Innovative Pediatric Dentistry, the expert pediatric dentists and bright, fun office make dental exams stress-free. While you're there, book a complimentary orthodontic screening at Innovative Orthodontic Centers, which is conveniently located under the same roof.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children have an orthodontic screening by age 7 to monitor growth and development. At this age, most kids have their first permanent molars, establishing the back of the bite.

While many kids won't need treatment immediately, for some, early intervention while they're still growing allows the doctor to guide jaw growth and the eruption of permanent teeth, helping avoid jaw surgery, extractions or extensive treatment later in life.

Older kids can benefit from an orthodontic assessment too. Kicking off treatment before school resumes will give your child time to acclimate to their braces or Invisalign and learn how to care for their new appliance.


At Innovative Orthodontic Centers (, American board-certified orthodontists Dr. Manal Ibrahim and Dr. Christine Gin are leaders in comfortable, accelerated orthodontics. They're among the top providers of Invisalign and SureSmile® prescription braces wires in the world and they use a technology-led approach to get better results more conveniently. The practice has been voted "Best Dentist" in Naperville by Naperville Magazine for 14 years in a row.


Innovative Pediatric Dentistry ( goes the extra mile to make dental care fun and exciting, setting your children up for lifelong oral health. The inviting office, specifically designed with your child in mind, will have them feeling safe and comfortable. Innovative Pediatric Dentistry also received "Best Dentist" in Naperville honors 14 years running.
