Outreach And Education

Oral Health Education and Screening


CDS provides educational presentations targeted towards both adults and children, and attends a wide variety of community and school-based events and health fairs to provide information about services and connect children and families to needed services.

CDS outreach program allows for thousands of families each year to receive oral health education, dental screenings, and increase awareness of how to access dental care. In 2014 alone over 15,000 children and pregnant women were screened. CDS follows up with every child and pregnant woman screened to connect them with a dental home and provide access to a full range of quality, comprehensive dental care. This screening program is funded generously by Delta Dental of Minnesota.

If you would like more information on having an outreach specialist come to your event or have a free screening with CDS, please contact outreach@childrensdentalservices.org.
