CHCB’s School-Based Dental Center is located at the Integrated Arts Academy at H.O. Wheeler School. CHCB and the Burlington School District opened this site in 2004. All children who are Burlington School District students or siblings of students, who are enrolled in Medicaid, Dr. Dynasaur or are low-income and uninsured and have not seen a dentist in the past year, are welcome. If you are low-income and uninsured, we’ll help you meet with our Patient Support staff to apply for programs and/or our Sliding-Fee Scale Program.
Getting started is easy, just fill out the School-Based Dental Center Medical/Dental History Form that correlates with your child’s grade (one for each child) sign it, and send it back to the school. CHCB’s School-Based Dental Center staff can even help you fill out the form; just call the Integrated Arts Academy at 802-658-4869 or CHCB’s Dental Center’s main telephone number 802-652-1050 for assistance. Once your child is signed up, the school and CHCB’s Dental Center will take care of everything else for you. If your child does not attend the Integrated Arts Academy, transportation can be arranged. Remember, parents are always invited to dental appointments, too.
