The WVU Health Sciences Center Eastern Division operates a school-based dental program which provides preventive dental for qualified children while they attend public school. The program is available for children ages 4-21 who are enrolled in the WV CHIP or Medicaid program and do not have a dental home. By providing services in the school setting, parents do not have to miss work or provide transportation to a facility and children miss only a few minutes of school time.
In addition, we provide the same services for children ages 1-3, pregnant teenagers up to age 20, and any adolescent who has Medicaid or CHIP insurance and does not attend public school. Patients not attending a brick and mortar public school, will be seen in our clinic located at 2008 Professional Court, Martinsburg.
To make an appointment, please call 304-596-6336.
Any child who has active Medicaid or WV CHIP insurance.
Depending on date of last dental visit, the following services can be provided:
If a child needs additional treatment, our staff will assist in finding a dentist to provide those services.
