Children’s Dental Services and Oral Health Education
The Health Trust provides oral health outreach and education through promotoras, Health Educators and Lay Health Workers who are community health workers trained on general concepts about oral health. The promotoras conduct outreach in English and in Spanish and recruit families to host home meetings where the oral health education is delivered to small groups of children and adults. Emphasis is placed on four principles of oral health: proper brushing, daily flossing, balanced diet and seeing the dentist on a regular basis. Last year, over 1,000 individuals received oral health education in homes and community sites. For more information on our oral health education workshops, email or call 408.961.9830.
