Good Morning Families,

We have very exciting news! We will be opening our very own dental clinic at PS 197Q! These services are exclusive only to the students attending PS 197.


The NYC Dept. of Education has partnered with NYU Langone – Dental to host a dental clinic for our scholars to receive dental services right here at P.S. 197Q – The Ocean School.  


This is a great opportunity for you and your child. All you have to do is sign and return the consent form attached. A hard-copy consent form and letter will be sent home with your child today. Please check your child's bookbag. When you return the letter, please have your child give it to his or her teacher. 


If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to NYU Langone Dental (347-377-4480) or call P.S. 197Q (718-327-1083) and ask for Susie Wilson, our parent coordinator, to provide you with more details.

Does your scholar need to practice at home?

Wondering what your scholar's class has been up to?

Would you like to know what else the DOE has to offer?

We work in conjunction with our community in order to keep our scholars honed in their skills in class, as well as given opportunities to test out new talents and become exposed to new activities. All the while tending to the emotional needs and health of our scholars.
