Through collaboration and partnerships with the Office of School Health and other community partners, Community Schools have access to a variety of health services to focus on healthy families and communities.
Office of School Health's Oral Health Program connects third-party dental providers to schools across the city. Services rendered are both preventative and restorative. (List of participating schools).
If you currently do not have the oral health program, find low to no-cost dental services for students and families in your borough here.

In schools without a health center, in some cases, doctor visits can be arranged. For information about establishing a health center in your Community School, contact your Program Manager.
