The Florida Department Health in Brevard County (DOH-Brevard) provides clinical and nutrition programs to help meet the needs of the community. We offer the following clinical and nutrition services:

Daily dental clinics are held for Medicaid-eligible children covered by most Medicaid Dental HMOs for preventative care. Adults over 20 with most Medicaid Dental HMO plans who are experiencing pain may be seen. DOH-Brevard also has an Adult Volunteer Dental Clinic to provide limited dental services to low-income adults without other access to dental care.
The school based dental sealant program provides free sealants to children, after parental consent, in Title 1 elementary schools in second and sixth grades.
PATH (Primary Access to Health)
DOH-Brevard’s Rabies Program Coordinator (RPC) investigates animal bites to a human by a potentially rabid animal for possible transmission of Rabies. If the RPC determines that there was a valid exposure then a procedure called Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) may be recommended. PEP consists of a series of vaccinations and offered at our Viera clinic site.
