Summit School District – School Based Health Center (SSD-SBHC) provides quality primary care, oral health and behavioral health services to Summit students and staff at four sites in Summit Schools through school based health centers. School Based Health Centers bring the doctor’s office to the school. The clinics are located in Dillon Valley Elementary (DVE), Silverthorne Elementary (SVE), Summit Middle School (SMS) and Summit High School (SHS). Some private insurance is accepted for services provided by SSD-SBHC, as well as Medicaid and CHP+. Students and families without insurance can be seen on a sliding fee scale.

SSD-SBHC follows an integrated health care model, just as SCCC does. All the health care providers at the school clinics are staff of SCCC, and use the same electronic health records. This provides a complete picture of the patient’s health, and allows for easy coordination of care between providers.

Behavioral health is the fastest growing component of SSD-SBHC. Professional, experienced therapists can help with a variety of challenges, and can link families to outside resources to further assist in any issue. Bilingual providers are available for those students who would prefer to speak with someone in Spanish. Students can refer themselves to therapy by visiting the school clinic, or school staff or family can contact a therapist to request a therapist reach out to a student. All information is confidential, and students or families are welcome to inquire about services at any time.

SSD-SBHC provides a comprehensive Oral Health Program for Summit School district students. All students in P-12 are given oral health assessments  following an oral health presentation by the SSD-SBHC dental hygienist. Each student is given an individual treatment plan and followed up with according to their need.  Additional individual appointments are also available in all of the School Based Health Center locations. Services include, cleanings, assessments, restorative work for cavities or periodontal disease.  Please call your school’s clinic to learn about available individual services.  Any student of Summit School District and their families can be seen at any of the four clinics, even if the student does not attend that school.
