SFDS participates in and supports CavityFree SF, a citywide collective impact partnership dedicated to achieving optimal oral health for all San Francisco children. CavityFree SF aims to eliminate oral health disparities by influence policy and establishing systems that provide preventive services and treatment in dental, medical, school and community settings.
While progress has been made in recent years to improve the oral health of children in San Francisco, high rates of untreated tooth decay persist in some areas of our community. Significant inequities exist based on race and income level.
