North Country Family Health Center (NCFHC) operates full-service health centers in the Watertown City and South Jefferson Central School Districts. Health Center staff provides primary care and behavioral health services to students. Dental clinics in both districts serve students to provide convenient access to preventative dental care. In an average year, more than 3,000 students make more than 10,000 visits to the NCFHC’s School-Based Health Centers.
Effective November 16, 2020 North Country Family Health Center’s School-Based Dental sites are closed due
to the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to the day when we can again provide preventative dental services within our 14 school locations. Any enrolled student who normally accesses school-based dental services is welcome to schedule an appointment at any of NCFHC’s 3 community-based dental locations – 238 Arsenal Street, Watertown (315.782.9450); 26908 Independence Way, Evans Mills (our LeRay Family Dental site)(315.782.2628); and 7785 North State Street, Lowville (315.376.4500).
There is not a co-pay or fee for any SBHC medical, behavioral health, or preventive dental care provided IN school. You may need to pay for some lab tests and x-rays done outside of the School-Based Health Center – for example blood work, lab cultures and strep tests. For more information click here.
NCFHC also offers preventive dental services (including dental cleaning, dental sealants, dental screening, and fluoride treatments) to students at Alexandria Bay, Copenhagen, Jefferson-Lewis BOCES, Lowville, South Lewis, and Lyme schools.
