Students at North, H.T. Wiley, Case and Watertown High School have access to School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) directly where they are – in school. These health centers are available to students when school is in session. Students at Starbuck, Knickerbocker, Sherman, and Ohio have access to the SBHC at North Elementary School. The school district provides transportation to and from the SBHC when it is needed.
All Watertown students also have access to preventive dental services (like cleanings, screenings, sealants, and fluoride varnish treatments). The Watertown School-Based Dental Clinic is located at Wiley School. Students from Wiley, Case and Watertown High are scheduled at that location. Portable dental equipment is used to provide dental care to children at Ohio and North Elementary. Students at Knickerbocker, Sherman, and Starbuck Elementary schools are seen at North Elementary.
All medical and preventive dental services are provided at no out-of-pocket cost to parents when services are done at school, within the School-Based Health Center. But, students must be enrolled in the School-Based Health Program it use it.
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).
