Oral Health

California law, Education Code Section 49452.8, requires that children have an oral health assessment (dental check-up) by December 1 in either kindergarten or first grade, whichever is their first year in public school. Assessments that have happened within the 12 months before the child enters school also meet this requirement. The law specifies that the assessment must be done by a licensed dentist or other licensed or registered dental health professional.

Parents must take the Oral Health Assessment/Waiver Request form to the dental office, as it will be needed for the child’s check-up. If parents cannot take their child for this required assessment, they must indicate the reason for this in Section 3 of the form. This form is available in English and Spanish. California law requires schools to maintain the privacy of students’ health information. The child’s identity will not be associated with any report produced as a result of this requirement.
