School-Based

HealthPoint provides School-Based Health and Dental programs to low-income students in the community. Students with good health tend to be better students because their health is not interrupting their schoolwork.

HealthPoint’s experience with providing health care services to schools has shown to reduce barriers for low-income children whose parents cannot get time off of work or lack the transportation to take their children to see a provider.

School-Based Health Services

HealthPoint operates school-based health centers in partnership with five school districts:

  • Covington Independent Public Schools
  • Erlanger-Elsmere Schools
  • Dayton Independent School District
  • Ludlow High School
  • Owenton Schools

The Nurse Practitioners supplement each school’s nurse. Nurse Practitioners are able to diagnose and treat illness, including writing prescriptions. With this service available at school, a child can recover more quickly and be absent fewer days.

Other services available at the school-based health centers are:

  • School and sports physicals
  • Immunizations
  • Help in managing chronic illness
  • Connection to mental health services
  • Vision screenings and assistance with glasses

Students must be enrolled in the health center at their school to receive treatment.

School-Based Dental Services

School-Based Dental Services

HealthPoint operates school-based dental offices in partnership with four school districts:

147-SchoolBasedDental[1]

  • Covington Independent Schools
  • Dayton Independent School District
  • Erlanger-Elsmere Schools
  • Ludlow High School
  • Newport Independent School District

The fully-staffed dental offices use portable equipment, which can be moved from school to school. The school-based dentist and assistants can perform nearly every procedure available in HealthPoint’s regular dental offices.

The portable offices inside schools are more cost-effective and efficient and will increase the number of students HealthPoint can treat each year.
