Family Dental Care
Our dental offices are open to serve all families – you can schedule preventative dental appointments as well as emergency appointments. We are taking the appropriate precautions as directed by the American Dental Association and the New York State Department of Health to make your visit as safe and comfortable as possible. Our dental providers work closely with community dental specialists to coordinate your individual dental needs. Our office locations are conveniently located within Jefferson and Lewis counties and our dental staff are knowledgeable in the latest techniques – a healthy mouth makes for a healthy body!
WIC: Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children
Did you know that WIC is still providing participants the convenience of doing appointments over the phone? Or, if you prefer, we too are welcoming walk-in appointments at all our locations. WIC has been there for young families for many years and continues to do so as everyone maneuvers through the pandemic – offering nutrition, health, breastfeeding and wellness support when it matters most.
The Watertown, Evans Mills/Fort Drum, and Lowville WIC programs offer nutrition, health, breastfeeding and wellness support for qualifying women, infants, and children. If you’re struggling to pay for high-quality foods for yourself or your child, need help with nutrition counseling, or you’re searching for the right health and social services, the North Country Family Health Center can help. The program is for all local residents who meet the eligibility requirements, and is a powerful tool for your family.
Community Health Center of the North Country
Community Health Center of the North Country has sites located in St. Lawrence, Franklin and Jefferson counties. Our health centers provide affordable, high quality healthcare to people of any age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, marital status and national origin, regardless of insurance or financial status.
Anyone can use our services, but most importantly, we act as a safety net for those without health insurance or for those who are under-insured. If that describes your situation, we offer a Sliding Fee Scale for most of our services based on your family size and income.
Our health centers are always evolving to make sure you are getting the highest quality and most comprehensive healthcare possible. In 2007, our St. Lawrence and Franklin County sites were designated as Federally Qualified Health Centers, which means our health centers meet the highest standards when it comes to quality of care.
Our team specializes in family medicine, offering primary, pediatric, dental, eye, and behavioral healthcare services for patients of all ages, including at our new state of the art practice we opened at 102 Ford Street in Ogdensburg in 2020. If the need arises…please give our team a try. It’s safe to see your doctor, avoiding care, is not.
