PRASAD: Bringing Dental Services to School Districts
PRASAD is a Dental Health Program that brings dental services to children ages six months to 18 years of age who are Not assigned or receiving services from another dental office.
The fully equipped mobile clinic has two dental offices that provide dental exams and an array of dental treatments including sealants, cleanings, fluoride, fillings, extractions, space maintainers and x-rays.
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 district or during the school holidays. The clinic is also open during the summer at their office in Ferndale.
To make an appointment, call (845) 434-0376 ext. 216. Participating School districts will also send an application home with all students before the clinic’s visit.
If a parent/guardian would like to utilize this service, they must first make PRASAD their dental provider by contacting their insurance company and requesting that PRASAD become their dental provider.
PRASAD accepts most insurance plans including Medicaid, Delta Dental, Fidelis, and MVP. A sliding fee application is available for uninsured children.
