School-Based Health Center Provides Comprehensive Care

February 19, 2012
The Post-Journal

Debbie Piotrowski, Jamestown High School's nurse practitioner, applied fluoride varnish to a student's teeth during a recent oral health check at the School-Based Health Center (SBHC). The oral health checks are new to the SBHC this year due to a $15,000 grant from Kaiser Permanente. The grant, only one of two received in the entire state of New York, allows JHS SBHC to identify 150 students that do not have a dentist to provide basic, preventive dental care through The Resource Center's Dental Clinic. The grant also stresses dietary counseling to caution students on eating high-sugar and calorie foods, as well as teaching about good oral hygiene.
