Maricopa County's Office of Oral Health administers First Teeth First, a First Things First funded program. Basic oral screenings, education and referrals are provided at no cost to expectant mothers and children 0 through age 5, not enrolled in kindergarten. Participating children are eligible to receive fluoride varnish every six months.
The First Teeth First program provides services throughout Maricopa County at Women, Infant and Children (WIC) clinics, Immunization clinics, and community events. Our valued partnership with Dignity Health has strengthened our outreach efforts in the East and Southeast Regions of Maricopa County. These preventive services are provided at no cost.
Support for First Teeth First is provided by a grant from First Things First, which partners with families and communities to give all Arizona children the opportunity to arrive at kindergarten healthy and ready to succeed. Learn more at FirstThingsFirstAZ.gov.
