The Access to Baby and Child Dentistry (ABCD) program puts young children across Washington state on a lifelong path to good oral health. ABCD connects low-income families with dentists who know how to care for young children, focusing on prevention and avoiding tooth decay, as well as educating parents about how to take good care of their children’s teeth.
Who is eligible?
Children from birth up to age 6 who are insured by Washington Apple Health (Medicaid) are eligible to participate in ABCD.
If you need assistance enrolling your child in Apple Health (Medicaid), go to ParentHelp123.
San Juan County Health and Community Services has partnered with Medical Teams International and other community partners including Fish for Teeth, Orcas Island Community Foundation, and Lopez Island Family Resource Center to bring the Mobile Dental Van to Orcas, Lopez, and San Juan Islands. The Mobile Dental Van serves people on Medicare or who do not have dental insurance and cannot afford dental care.
This program could not be possible without the support of our local partners and wonderful volunteers! If you are interested in helping the day of the van checking in dental patients (no dental experience needed) please fill out the Dental Van Volunteer Application.
