Dental health screenings and preventive treatments also are available in selected schools. For more information on these services, please click here.
Please note: The School-Based Health Centers do not take the place of your child’s doctor and other health care providers. We work with primary care physicians to better coordinate your child’s health care. Ongoing communication occurs as necessary between the School-Based Health Center, and your child’s doctor.
What kind of health care providers are on staff at the Centers?
The School-Based Health Center staff consists of pediatricians, nurse practitioners, clinic assistants, dental hygienists, dental assistants, mental health counselors and substance abuse counselors. School nurses and social workers work closely with the Center staff to coordinate appointments and referrals.
What students are eligible?
We are happy to see any student with a completed enrollment form that has been signed by a parent. Students who are at least 18 years old, emancipated minors, married, or who live independently may sign permission for themselves.
