Kindergarten Oral Health Requirement

Lack of access to dental care is a problem for many California children. Dental disease is one of the most common reasons for school absences, and make it hard for children to concentrate and learn. The kindergarten dental checkup requirement, AB 1433, signed into law in 2005, helps schools identify children suffering from untreated dental disease and helps parents establish a dental home for their children.
