Working Together for Healthier Kids

Healthy Smiles Lead to Happier Kids



At Children’s Dental Network, we make kids happier and healthier by introducing them to good dental habits at an early age. Together with school districts throughout the Greater Derry and Salem areas, we make obtaining dental care easy and affordable by providing free and low-cost screenings, teeth cleanings, temporary fillings and fluoride treatments right in school.

Our educational programs give teachers the resources they need to help their students learn about oral health, and our in-school presentations teach them how to have a healthy smile that will last a lifetime. Most importantly, we help children become comfortable with going to the dentist. And that’s really something to smile about!

Whether you’re a parent, an educator, a sponsor, or a dentist, we’re looking forward to working together with you! And don’t forget to brush and floss every day, and visit the dentist for regular check-ups – a healthy smile will last a lifetime!


The mission of the Children's Dental Network is to improve oral health for children in the greater Derry area through education, delivery of services, and facilitation of improved access to oral health services.

Our hygienists, Hope Saltmarsh and Dianne Powers, are among the first in NH to become Certified Public Health Dental Hygienists, new members of NH's dental workforce with specialized education and experience qualifying them to deliver expanded services in community and school settings!
