A Note about our current services:
Through the Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) Program, children and youth receive routine regular preventive health exams in order to identify health problems. Many problems can be prevented, corrected or the severity reduced by prompt diagnosis and treatment. CHDP health exams are provided by doctors and clinics enrolled in the CHDP Program.
The Oral Public Health Program (OPHP) works with community partners to improve the conditions for oral health in San Mateo County, particularly for those facing historical and systemic barriers to oral health.
The OPHP currently focuses on reaching pregnant people and children ages 0-5 and their parents/ caregivers who are on Health Plan of San Mateo (Medi-Cal) health insurance.
See below for:
- Oral health education and resources for parents/ caregivers of 0-5 year olds and pregnant people
- Information about fluoride and sealants
- Resources and trainings for teachers and health care professionals
- Information about how to find a dentist
- Information about the Kindergarten Oral Health Assessment
- Books, songs, videos, and apps to keep oral health fun for the kids!
The Oral Public Health Program is funded by the California Department of Public Health, under Contract 22-10196.
California Children’s Services (CCS) is a tax supported statewide program that helps children and young adults up to 21 years old who have certain medical conditions. Services include arranging, directing, and paying for medical care, occupational and physical therapy, equipment, and rehabilitation.
CCS is not a health insurance plan. It will only cover CCS eligible conditions and not all of a child’s health care needs. There are also certain financial requirements for some of the services provided.
