5. Expand Access to Children’s Dental Services and Provide Outreach

Grants must be used for programs that expand/increase direct dental services to CalOptima members ages 0–18 (youth) by increasing number of staff, extending hours/days of operation and/or providing additional services. For example, programs may include services delivered in a school-based, mobile and/or other trusted community setting including tele-dentistry and/or provide evening/weekend hours. Programs must include outreach and education to promote awareness of and connect CalOptima members to the services being provided. Funds are for non-Medi-Cal contracted services and may not be used as reimbursement for Medi-Cal covered services.
