Home > Access to Baby and Child Dentistry (ABCD)
Every child deserves healthy teeth.
The Access to Baby and Child Dentistry program - ABCD - puts young children on a lifelong path to good oral health. ABCD connects low-income families with dentists who know how to care for young kids, preventing tooth decay early and educating parents about how to take good care of their children's teeth.
