Did you know that early childhood cavities are 5 times more common than Asthma? Poor dental health is significantly associated with reductions in school performance and psychosocial well-being. Preventing and treating dental problems may benefit child academic achievement and improve self esteem. If your kid does not have a dental home, now is the time to enroll! You ONLY need to have active Medi-Cal or to be Medi-Cal eligible. A dental care coordinator will find you a dental home and guide you through the process to better dental health.
