Yes. All children in the household ages 4-8 can attend the Visit. (For the best result, we highly recommend only children 4-8 be in the room during the visit.) 

Will children receive toothbrushes?

At-Home Visits: When parents/guardians schedule the visit, they will have the option to include their home address so the Captain can mail a care package with a toothbrush and other items to the child after the visit. This is OPTIONAL. If more than one child attends the at-home virtual visit, each individual child will receive a package.

School Classroom Visits:  Enough toothbrushes, brush charts and mirror clings for the entire class will be shipped to the teacher, who is responsible for distributing the items to the students.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule a Virtual Visit?

Once you have scheduled a Virtual Visit using our online scheduling program, you will receive a confirmation email that includes a link to cancel or reschedule. Important: If you do not receive a confirmation email within a few minutes of scheduling a visit, please email us at CaptainSupertooth@gmail.com.

What safety and security measures are taken?

Captain Supertooth Virtual Visits are conducted via Zoom using a secure password. Additionally, an adult is required to be in the room during the visit at all times. Zoom visits may be recorded for quality assurance or training purposes, but will not be used for promotional purposes.
