The mission of PRASAD CDHP is to improve the quality of life of children by providing oral care services and dental health education. The program is a certified, New York State Department of Health Article 28 Clinic and School Based Health Center, approved to operate at New York State schools.
The PRASAD vehicle, with two fully equipped dental offices, allows them to provide dental exams and an array of dental treatments including sealants, cleanings, fluoride, fillings, extractions, space maintainers and x-rays.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE SERVICES?
Children ages six months through 18 years of age. PRASAD CDHP accepts most insurance plans including Medicaid, Delta Dental, Fidelis and MVP, and a sliding fee is offered for uninsured children. An appointment is required.
HOW CAN I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
For more information or to make an appointment please call 845-434-0376 x216. The school will send application forms home with all children before the clinic’s visit. A parent or legal guardian must sign and return the medical history form and consent for treatment before the child can be seen in the clinic.
WHAT IS THE SCHEDULE FOR THE MOBILE DENTAL CLINIC?
The dental clinic visits Sullivan County schools on a rotating basis. It is also possible to arrange an appointment when the clinic is not at your local school site or during school holidays or the summer, when the clinic is open at our new office at 100 Sullivan Avenue in Ferndale.
