Every child deserves to be healthy

Access to Baby and Child Dentistry (ABCD) puts young children across Washington state on a lifelong path to good oral health. ABCD connects low-income families with providers who know how to care for young children, focusing on prevention and avoiding tooth decay, as well as educating parents about how to take good care of their children’s teeth. Originally established to increase access to dental services for Medicaid eligible clients age five and younger, starting in January 2022, the program will be expanded to include children with a Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) indicator thorough age twelve.
