    The Cavity Free Sonoma Pilot Project is for children ages 0-6 years of age who are enrolled in Medi-Cal. Families are provided with a dental assessment that lets parents know if their children are at high, medium or low risk for dental disease. Each child and parent or caregiver meets with a bilingual Community Dental Health Worker, recently trained at Santa Rosa Junior College, who helps patients and their parents understand oral health, and provides behavior coaching in a culturally relevant way. The health worker also helps the parent or caregiver download an app to track appointments, monitor health goals, and gets tips and reminders via their Apple or Android device. The Department of Health Services has partnered with local health centers to deliver this care to eligible families. Families interested in receiving services should contact a clinic at this page: Learn about dental insurance coverage available through Covered California and Medi-Cal on the Accessing Dental Care webpage:
