NCHC has partnered with North Country Hospital and the Vermont Department of Oral Health to replicate The Community Dental Program, a highly successful transportation program between schools and dental offices. The program began with the Orleans County School District (OCSU) on November 1, 2018.
The opportunities of the program include assistance with transportation needs, removing the need for the parent or guardian to leave work, offering access to a dental group who accepts Dr. Dynasaur/Medicaid, and developing good dental habits at a young age, which will help in preventing other dental health issues later in life.
Based on its success, the Community Dental Program has been replicated by the Newport Elementary, Troy Elementary, and Derby Elementary Schools.
