I could be mistaken, here, but I don't think the OP objects to dental care or thinks it is not "appropriate." I think the issue is the school prying into a child's medical records and/ or misusing medical records and/ or punishing her child by denying entry because they disagree with a parent on vax/ vax records.
I find that despite my best intentions to love others as myself and treat them as I want to be treated... I get snarky about giving HIPAA protected info to those who do not work at a medical facility especially when they don't say please, LOL!
And I agree that bringing a dentist or other professional in to see children whose parents prefer this convenience, or appreciate the lower cost, or simply do not take their children for treatment elsewhere is a far superior plan to gathering protected data on every child and hoping that everyone who has access to a public school office is HIPAA cert! Oh, and I homeschool, so this has never been an issue for us... I DO appreciate dodging this mess! Added side benefit, I guess, haha.
