Lead and environmental lead investigation

Children are required to have a blood screening for lead by age 12 months and again at 24 months.

Dental sealants

Brushing and flossing can remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth. But they cannot always get into all the pits and fissures of the posterior teeth to remove the food and plaque.

Long-acting reversible contraceptives

Long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) provide long-lasting pregnancy prevention and are ideal for many patients. LARCs are up to 20 times more effective than other forms of reversible birth control.
