ABCD focuses on preventative oral health services and oral health education for families. The ABCD program connects children (ages 0-5) with Medicaid to a local dentist who is specially-trained to work with young children. As of 2016, only 48.1% of Medicaid-eligible children received dental care in Kittitas County (Fiscal Year 2016 Washington Dental Service Foundation).

Did You Know?

  • Baby teeth matter! Infants should see their dentist by first tooth or first birthday.
  • Cavity-causing germs can pass from mouth to mouth. Expecting moms should see their dentist before baby arrives.
  • Brush your kiddo’s teeth for two minutes, twice a day.
  • Lift the lip! Make sure you get a good look at all those baby teeth by lifting your child’s lip for a better view. If you see little brown or white spots, get to your dentist right away.
