A School-Based Health Center is an expanded school health program provided by a joint effort between the school district and The Resource Center. A School-Based Health Center (SBHC) provides comprehensive health care services to students enrolled at the school. For children who already have a health care provider, the SBHC staff can work with that provider in caring for your child. For children without a primary health care provider, the SBHC staff may become the child’s primary source of health care.
The School Based Health Center at Jamestown High School also provides dental hygiene services. The SBHCD clinic doesn’t take the place of your family’s dentist, but instead works as an additional service to enhance the dental care of the student in a convenient location. Your family dentist will always be informed of any treatment or problems. If you don’t have a dentist or insurance, the SBHCD will work with you to determine what options are available. Nobody will be turned away because of an inability to pay and parents will always be contacted prior to any treatment.
When the school is closed, access to medical care is still available, either by contacting your Child’s Primary Care Provider, or by calling TRC 716-661-1447.
Dental Hygientist services provided to students include:
- Dental Cleanings
- Digital X-Rays
- Fluoride Treatments
- Dental Sealants
- Ability to email x-rays to family dentist.
The School Based Health Center at Jamestown High School also provides mental health services for students who are in need of these professional-based services. Today’s student population can face a lot of pressures and emotional stress not only from the demands of school but from peer pressure. It’s important to seek help and medical attention when needed. The School Based Health Center at Jamestown High School provides these important services on site.
