DO YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR DENTAL BENEFITS?
Children should start receiving preventative dental services as soon as their first tooth appears or by age 1! Pregnant mothers also need dental care as their health affects the health of their unborn child. Learn more about dental benefits under Medi-Cal or Covered California.
LOOKING FOR SUPPORT AND RESOURCES?
First 5 Riverside supports early learning, child health and family strengthening so all Riverside County children through age 5 can build a strong foundation for success in school and beyond. See our directory of grantees and partner programs and services in Riverside County.
