Although they are not very common, a school entrance oral health exam is asked for at some educational institutions. The reason for this, as stated in the AAPD’s Policy on Mandatory School-entrance Oral Health Examinations, is that “An oral examination prior to matricula­tion into school could improve school readiness by providing a timely opportunity for diagnosis and treatment of oral condi­tions.”
