ConnextCare to Expand Dental Services to the Oswego City School District

ConnextCare has announced plans to expand dental services to the Oswego School District, as the first step to the launch of its fully integrated School-Based Health Center Program slated for next fall.

The new School Based Health Center will be located at the Frederick Leighton Elementary School and will first be open for enrollment for those students within the Leighton Elementary School and the adjacent Oswego High School. "The Oswego City School District is excited to partner with ConnextCare to bring in-school health services to our students,” stated Dr. Raymond Kilmer, Superintendent of Oswego Schools. “This partnership will ensure our students have access to high quality health care."

The School Based Health Center will be staffed by a dental hygienist, who is able to provide routine cleanings, take x-rays, administer fluoride treatments, and sealants as well as offer comprehensive oral health education. Services are slated to begin in February.

“We are excited to be able to provide dental services to the students in the Oswego City School District.” stated Tricia Peter-Clark, President and CEO of ConnextCare, “All of the services we offer through the School Based Health Centers are convenient for the students and their families as we can see these patients without them having to leave the school. Having our Dental Hygienist, Holly Steffen, at the school will allow many students the opportunity to have routine dental care that they may not otherwise have access to. Holly will also offer “Tooth Talks” to Pre-K and Kindergarten students to provide toothbrushes and oral health education!”

An enrollment form will need to be completed in order to register children for dental services. Enrollment forms can be found on the ConnextCare website at, at the schools main offices or any main ConnextCare location.
