Report: One-quarter of children under age 6 who are enrolled in Medi-Cal/Denti-Cal received a preventive dental check in 2015. Untreated tooth decay can lead to poor academic achievement, chronic disease and social isolation. In addition, chronic oral health problems often require expensive treatment in emergency rooms and hospitals. Currently, fewer than half of California's federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) provide oral health services along with traditional primary care services. Authors of the paper propose four recommendations to expand oral health care capacity at FQHCs, to give more children access to oral health care where they receive primary care services.

Funding for the report was provided by the UCLA-First 5 LA Oral Health Program.
