Access - Innovative Team

Reduce caries experience by: expanding delivery into settings children frequent, such as schools; increasing the number of dental providers serving low-income children; widening case management to ensure children receive preventive dental care and treatment.

Since the CavityFree SF Strategic Plan began in 2014:

20

New preschools offered Fluroride Varnish

45%

Decrease in caries experience in preschoolers

12%

Increase in preschoolers receiving Fluoride Varnish

  • Increase the number of providers delivering preventive oral health services where children frequent.

    We will identify opportunities for public-private partnerships for preventive care provision outside of traditional dental offices, prioritizing neighborhoods with limited dental resources.

  • Expand oral health preventive service delivery to settings where caregivers, children, and pregnant women frequent.

    We will advocate for preschool children to receive preventive oral health services at their childcare sites, at the ⅓ highest risk preschools and community resource centers in the highest risk neighborhoods.

  • Expand the oral health preventive services at SFUSD.

    We will support the expansion of fluoride varnish and sealant programs at SFUSD, at the ⅓ highest risk elementary schools.
