All WellPartners children’s dental paperwork and appointments are managed through the school system by the child's school nurse. Because eligibility is determined within the school system, no additional paperwork is required. Please see your child's school nurse for more details.
Children five years of age or older who:
- Are enrolled in public school in Richland or Lexington counties
- Are enrolled in free or reduced lunch program
- Are not eligible for Medicaid or any other type of insurance
- Are referred by a school nurse
Regular dental care keeps children in school. No, really. Children with dental pain are three times more likely to miss school than those with healthy teeth and gums.
