School Based Dental Program Offred to Qualified Children

The WVU Health Sciences Center Eastern Division operates a school-based dental program which provides preventive dental for qualified children while they attend public school. The program is available for children ages 4-21 who are enrolled in the WV CHIP or Medicaid program and do not have a dental home. By providing services in the school setting, parents do not have to miss work or provide transportation to a facility and children miss only a few minutes of school time. Learn more at the links provided below.
