Oral Health Program
Access to Baby and Child Dentistry (ABCD) Program
ABCD focuses on family oral health education and preventative oral health services by connecting children with Medicaid
from birth to age six with a local dentist who is specially-trained to work with young children. As of 2010-2011 in Kittitas
County there were more than 1,400 Medicaid-eligible children under age six but less than half (43.5%) of those children
received dental care (Fiscal Year 2010 Department of Social and Health Services data).

Kittitas County Oral Health Coalition
The mission of the Kittitas County Oral Health Coalition is to support education about oral health issues and strengthen
access to oral health care for all residents of Kittitas County.
The Kittitas County Oral Health Coalition is an action council comprised of health care professionals and community leaders.
The coalition meets on a quarterly basis to discuss issues surrounding access to dental care in Kittitas Valley.
As far back as 1992, individuals from various agencies came together to discuss strategies to address the issues of access
to dental care for the underserved population of Kittitas County.
Under the guidance of the Coalition, the Kittitas County Public Health Department's Oral Health Program has established
a successful school sealant program, participated in the Hope Source Back to School Back Pack program, developed several
educational programs, and implemented a comprehensive dental care program for residents in Assisted Living Centers.
The Oral Health Coalition welcomes new members. If you are interested in joining or have questions about the Coalition
please call Amy Fuller (509) 962-7002.
