Future Funding Needs
Here’s what we need to support our strategic plan:
Increase access to oral health care services for children & pregnant women
Expand children and pregnant women's access to dental services by increasing the number of safety net dental providers serving low-income children, and delivery into settings where women and children frequent.
Expand Case Management for San Francisco children & pregnant women
Increase case management for children with dental treatment needs at SFUSD, pre-schools/Head Start, WIC, as well as through the Child Health & Disability Prevention (CHDP) program.
Provide trainings and resources to medical providers and support staff
These trainings in medical settings will incorporate oral health assessment, referral and application of fluoride varnish into all patient care settings where children’s health and prenatal care is addressed.
Support data collection, analysis, and reporting
Increase staff time; maintain a committee that includes an epidemiologist from the SF DPH and members with expertise in oral epidemiology, biostatistics, and program evaluation.
Maintain staffing at SF DPH to support the implementation of the Strategic Plan
Maintain staffing at SF DPH/UCSF to support the implementation of the Oral Health Strategic Plan.
