An oral health assessment is required for children entering kindergarten or first grade. The parent/guardian must submit proof of an oral health assessment performed by a licensed dentist by May 31st of the first school year. (Ed Code 49452.8) The goal of this program is to establish a regular source of dental care for every child. The program will identify children who need further examination and dental treatment. Dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease and is easily preventable. Dental decay affects nearly two-thirds of California’s children by the time they reach third grade. This new law is intended to raise parents’ awareness of the importance of oral health to overall health and readiness to learn.
