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:
New preschools offered Fluroride Varnish
Decrease in caries experience in preschoolers
Increase in preschoolers receiving Fluoride Varnish
Establish a sustainable funding steam
for providers to bill Denti-Cal for dental care delivered outside clinic settings
Increase service delivery to settings frequented by children and families
via school-based oral health screenings, caregiver education, fluoride varnish, and referrals to dental care
Expand oral health services at SFUSD
more schools and grades receiving screenings and oral health education
Increase number of dental providers serving low-income young children and pregnant women
by educating current and future dental providers to serve 0-3 year olds and pregnant women
Expand case management
for children with dental treatment needs to ensure identified children receive treatment
