Kindergarten Oral Health Assessment

 

One of the goals of the Kindergarten Oral Health Assessment is to help you find a dental

    home for your child. A dental home is where you take your child for regular care and the

dentist or clinic knows you. All the dentists and clinics on the other side of this page

TIPS FOR MAKING A DENTAL APPOINTMENT

  • Explain that your child has been referred to see a dentist from your pediatrician, family doctor, or through a CHDP exam.
  • If your child has a toothache or is in pain be sure to tell the dental office.
  • If the dental office isn’t making appointments for new patients and you have transportation and can make a “last minute” appointment, ask if you may have your child placed on a cancellation list to see the dentist in the event of a cancellation.
  • If you make an appointment, be sure to go to the dentist at that time.  If it is necessary to cancel your appointment please call as early as possible, so that your appointment can be filled by someone else.  Your “no show” wastes the dentist’s time and may prevent you or a family member from getting service in the future.
  • The Medi-Cal beneficiary toll free number is 1-800-322-6384.  They may be able to help you find a dentist or orthodontist who accepts Medi-Cal.
