​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Oral Health Program


The Sacramento County Oral Health Program connects people to dental care, provides oral health education and resources for the community. ​  ​

Why is dental health important?

A healthy mouth, teeth and gums are essential to good overall health! Teeth are meant to last a lifetime. They help us chew food, speak clearly and smile. Healthy mouth habits prevent bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. Keep your mouth healthy by brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste twice a day, flossing daily, eating a healthy diet and limiting added sugars, visiting the dentist regularly, and avoiding tobacco use.
