Children entering Georgia public schools for the first time are required by the State of Georgia to undergo basic ear, eye, nutrition, and dental examinations regardless of the grade being entered. Preregistration varies by school district and this program is valid throughout the year.

FYI: The nutrition screening became a new requirement in 2013.
According to the Georgia Department of Health, the original Form 3300, Certificate of Ear, Eye and Dental Examinations, was revised to make it clear and easy to understand for health providers, parents and schools. Parents or guardians of children being admitted for the first time to a public school in Georgia must present the Form 3300 to school authorities.

Parents are responsible for providing the necessary State examination form. These forms are available from local county health departments or boards of education. The revised Form 3300 maybe also be obtained by clicking this link. You will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to open this form.


Consumers should note that the oral evaluation required for school enrollment is not a substitute for a comprehensive examination, cleaning and / or x-rays. Dentists and staff members are encouraged to have an understanding of the rudimentary evaluation procedure and inform parents of the difference if appointments are made in their offices.
