Abstract:

This brief highlights rigorous, independent evaluations of the Healthy Kids programs in three California counties: Los Angeles, San Mateo, and Santa Clara. It describes some of the many positive impacts that Healthy Kids programs have had on children's access and use of dental services. For children enrolled in the program, access to dental care improved and unmet need for dental care declined.
