Family Health Resources

Healthcare is expensive, and we know it can be stressful to find healthcare for your family. Both the city of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana have developed programs to help families with healthcare. The following list has been compiled by the Student Services Department for your convenience. New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary does not necessarily endorse any of the entities or programs listed below.


Greater New Orleans Immunization Network (GNOIN)

The Greater New Orleans Immunization Network (GNOIN) was created in April 1998 when Christian Health Ministries partnered with several area hospitals to implement an immunization program for the children of Metropolitan New Orleans. The program focused on increasing the immunization rates for children by age two years. GNOIN offers the combined elements of an immunization registry and a mobile immunization unit (MIU). The primary objective of the Greater New Orleans Immunization Network is to protect all children from vaccine preventable diseases. This is accomplished by raising parental awareness on the importance of timely infant immunizations, by establishing a systematic method to locate and immunize children and by providing convenient access to immunization services. An immunization registry provides a confidential, computerized record of immunizations. Coverage rates are easily calculated to establish and monitor the immunization rates of children. As families move in and out of public and private health care systems, registries serve as a powerful tool to ensure that children receive timely and proper immunizations. Children are enrolled in the state immunization mobile immunization unit. Healthcare providers are key to the success of any immunization effort. With the active participation of private physicians, nurses and other healthcare providers we can positively impact the health of children in our community.


The LSU Dental School

The LSUHSC School of Dentistry has three separate clinical programs, dental student, advanced education, and faculty dental practice that offer a full range of dental services and procedures. In addition to routine dental procedures, patients have access to specialists in endodontics, oral pathology, orthodontics, oral surgery, periodontics, pediatric dentistry, and prosthodontics. The services offered by the school are at greatly reduced prices. 

The Tooth Bus

(Children’s Hospital / LSU Dental School Mobile Dental Clinics)
The Tooth Bus is a community service providing free dental care to children in need. The Tooth Bus is a mobile dental office that travels to various locations throughout the New Orleans area to provide dental exams and other standard procedures to children of all ages who meet eligibility requirements. In addition to providing dental treatment, The Tooth Bus also offers community education on promoting good dental health and hygiene, and information on preventing dental problems in children.
