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 pregnant women and children 0 through 5 years of age. 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, childcare centers, preschools and community events. Our valued partnership with Dignity Health has strengthened our outreach in eastern Maricopa County. These preventive services are provided at no cost to the family or participating locations.
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.
