KCDC provides low-cost treatments to children ages 18 and younger from low-income families all over Southern California. Once parents qualify under our financial guidelines, our volunteers get to work keeping the child's mouth healthy and smile bright.
Parents, if you see us early - even before baby is born - we will teach you how to keep your baby cavity-free - at no cost to you!
We visit many schools in Southern California to offer a variety of free services to help children have healthy teeth. Limited visual examinations, fluoride treatments, toothbrushes, brushing and flossing instruction and demonstrations are given at participating schools. This program's intent is to provide parents with a general sense of their child's dental health, information where they can go for affordable dental treatments, and to reinforce daily brushing and flossing. If you receive information from your child's school that the Kids' Community Dental Clinic will be visiting, please be sure to sign the permission form so that we may evaluate your child and give them a free fluoride treatment to help prevent tooth decay. See our News & Events page for a calendar of school screenings.
In addition to schools, KCDC often participates in free programs and health fairs where families can receive free oral health evaluations, fluoride treatments, dental sealants to prevent future cavities, free toothbrushes, preventive education, and fun games and prizes to help get kids to think about good oral health! KCDC always emphasizes follow-up visits for diagnosed problems or preventive treatments. See our News & Events page to find out which community we will visit next!
The Kids' Community Dental Clinic is proud to build relationships with dental and pre-dental students, providing them an opportunity to study and gain experience in a pediatric dental environment. Even young volunteers are encouraged to join us at health fairs or come in and observe to determine whether they may be interested in a dental career. Our hope is that they will be inspired to pursue a career in the dental field and return to serve as a professional volunteer at KCDC!
