The Regional Primary Care Network is teaming up with schools across Chemung and parts of Schuyler county to provide dental and heath care to students who are in need of certain services.
The goal of the program is to keep students as healthy as possible throughout schools in the southern tier so that nothing is taken away from their education.
Dental services and free screenings were being offered the week of Dec 10. to over 30 students at Broadway Elementary School by the families request.
Students are asked to visit periodically throughout their school day. The students visits include a dental cleaning and a teeth cleaning, x-rays and dental sealants if needed.
The programs next stop wll be Hendy Avenue Elementary School in Elmira, N.Y.
