Mobile dental practice to offer services in Chartiers Valley schools

Wednesday, April 30, 2014, 9:01 p.m.

Rather than Chartiers Valley students going to the dental chair, the dental chair is coming to them.

The district school board voted last week to bring SmileMobile to the district. SmileMobile is a mobile dentist office for low-income students. It provides screening and basic dental services to students, including cleanings, X-rays and fluoride treatments.

Children 1 to 18 are eligible with parental consent.

Pennsylvania requires all students to have dental screenings.

SmileMobile is based out of Washington state and is a partnership among Delta Dental, the Washington Dental Service Foundation and Seattle Children's Hospital.

Dates and times of the dental visits will be determined.

Green Tree

Donations of gently used books will be accepted at Green Tree Public Library Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Members of Friends of the Library will be available to receive and sort the books and ask that donations be brought in small boxes. Most of the donated books will be sold at the library's annual used book sale held each fall.

Donations accepted include good-quality cookbooks, fiction, nonfiction, paperbacks and hardbacks, children's books and CDs and DVDs. The library will not accept Readers Digest books, textbooks older than five years, computer books older than two years, dated publications, magazines and poor-quality materials that are damaged, stained or excessively highlighted.

Donated materials cannot be returned and become property of the Friends of the Library. Tax receipts are available.


Heidelberg will hold its fourth borough-wide garage sale from 7 a.m. to noon on May 17.

Borough residents and businesses are invited to put out sale items.

No registration is necessary, and the borough will advertise the sales for residents. Shoppers can then go door to door finding “hidden” treasures.

The event began in 2011, and borough manager Joe Kauer said turnout has been good each year — usually 40 to 50 sales are set up.

For more information, contact the borough at 412-276-0363.
