About the Education and Training Project

The goal of the First 5 California Oral Health Initiative is to significantly reduce the incidence of tooth decay in young children. This is a $10 million project over 4 years.


This project is a collaborative effort between


  • The California Dental Association Foundation, and
  • The Dental Health Foundation.


The Education and Training Project plans to provide education and training to 75% of dental providers and 50% of medical providers throughout California. There is another project that will directly target families, largely through Head Start, to increase their understanding of the importance of oral health for young children.
