Keeping Bryant Kids Healthy

Located at Bryant Elementary, the Hornet Health Center is a doctor’s office on campus where students can receive quality care at the most convenient location for them—school. The Center operates as a partnership with the school, Arkansas Pediatric Clinic, Kinard Dental Arts and Connection Company (Bryant School District Department of Mental Health Services).

Dr. Anton Duke with Arkansas Pediatric Clinic provide care for illness and minor injury, as well as routine wellness services including immunizations and preventative health care. The clinic is open on Tuesday and Thursday for morning and afternoon appointments. To make an appointment, call 664-4117 to and ask to be seen at the Bryant office.    

Dr. Michael Kinard joined the Center to provide dental care. He provides a full range of dental services for children and adults. Dr. Kinard sees patients on Fridays from 8am-3pm. To discuss billing (including Medicaid) or make an appointment, call 501-653-5041.

Mental health services are also available. Call 653-5040 to schedule an appointment.

With enrollment in the health center, students can be seen by medical and dental personnel during school without having to miss hours or even an entire day. It’s especially helpful to parents who will not have to leave work for an appointment.

Students must have parent permission prior to being seen at the Health Center. The Center bills the insurance agency after confirming health coverage. Doctors also see patients with Medicaid after parents change PCP of physician at clinic. If your insurance requires a referral, that will be needed before we can see your child.

With the goal of creating a culture of health, school personnel will work together with parents to ensure the health center meets student needs efficiently, effectively, and seamlessly. For more information contact Angela Lasiter at 653-5042.

The Hornet Health Center was made possible by a grant from Arkansas Department of Education–Office of Coordinated School Health.
