• Kinder Oral Health Assessment Information

    California law Education Code Section 49452.8, requires that your child have an oral health assessment or dental check-up in his or her first year in public school (kindergarten or first grade). Every child needs an oral health assessment from a licensed dentist or other licensed or registered dental health professional, and a completed Oral Health Assessment form (attached to this letter) to meet this requirement.

    If your child has not had an oral health assessment in the past 12 months, they will need one before May 31.

    When you take your child to the dentist, please bring the Kindergarten Oral Health Assessment form to be completed.

    If you cannot take your child for an oral health assessment, please fill out the Waiver of Oral Health Assessment Requirement form, and return the form.  Please return the form to your child’s School Nurse.
