How To Prevent A Lice Infestation

School settings are the perfect environment for head lice to transfer from child to child. We know how disruptive a head lice infestation at school can be.

But by early detection, you can easily reduce the chances that an infestation will occur at your school. When screenings are performed after major vacation breaks and at various times during the year, infestations can be rare.

Licenders’ Lice Screenings for Your School

We are proud to be the most chosen school lice screening service in New York and Connecticut. And, we are the only service approved by the NYC Department of Education!

We have over 40 clinicians on staff and when they arrive, they are dressed professionally, and bring our own high-magnification lamps. Every one of our clinicians is highly trained, background checked, insured, courteous and patient.

To make it easier for you, we will provide one clinician for every 100 children enabling each classroom to be checked within minutes. A Licenders liaison always accompanies the clinicians to keep the work flowing smoothly.
