Oral Health Program
Tooth decay is the most prevalent chronic health problem among children in California. The Center for Disease Control reports that more than forty percent of children have decay before entering kindergarten. Due to these alarming statistics, First 5 Placer is funding the efforts of Placer County's Public Health division to address this largely preventable health issue. The Placer County Oral Health Program focuses on promoting preventive dental care knowledge and access to early preventive dental services with the aim of boosting the number of Placer County's residents who remain cavity-free.
