CHDP Dental Resources

During a CHDP Examination, a child is evaluated for his/her dental health, advice is given regarding dental hygiene and fluoride supplementation. Children three years and older are referred for routine dental care. However, the CHDP Program does not have funding to pay for dental care. The Program does refer families for insurance coverage through Medi-Cal and Healthy Families. 

The CHDP Program does make referrals to California Children Service (CCS) when there are major orthodontic or craniofacial (skull and facial bones) problems. Click on CCS Orthodontia Clinic for details.

The following is a partial list of dentists in the area currently accepting Medi-Cal. This list is subject to change at any time. You may also call the state Denti-Cal office at 1-800-322-6384. If you have questions, please call the CHDP office at 831-763-8932.
