MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

Welcome to the Dental Department page. The Dental Department focuses on oral health treatment and disease prevention. We strive to educate our community members on all their oral health needs and concerns to help you make decisions that are right for you.  We understand dental diseases can affect quality of life.  We also understand that going to the dentist can sometimes be intimidating. We would like our community members to know we want to support you and make your dental visit as comfortable as possible.

DENTAL SERVICES

The best way to protect your smile and ensure overall health is by preventing dental problems before they begin. SNAHC’s Dental Department is committed to providing the highest level of patient education, prevention and general dentistry for adults and children of all ages to protect your smile.

DENTAL SERVICES INCLUDE:

Pediatric Services
We strongly feel that pediatric dental care is essential for giving children the proper foundation for a healthy life, from childhood through adolescence and beyond. SNAHC’s dental providers and staff understand that children are often frightened at the thought of seeing a dentist-especially if it is their first visit. We are committed to ensuring all pediatric patients are comfortable and have the best experience possible at SNAHC.

Parents, you can help reduce your child’s risk of tooth decay by:

  • Scheduling a visit with a dentist between one and two years of age to start preventative care such as sealants and fluoride treatment.
  • If your child craves a snack, offer them nutritious foods.
  • If your children chew gum, make it sugarless.
  • Instead of soft drinks, choose water and low-fat milk
  • Help your children develop good brushing and flossing habits.
  • Schedule regular dental visits.

Referrals to specialists are made when necessary.

Helpful links for Children’s Oral Health Information:
Make sure your kids brush for 2 minutes, twice a day.

Partnerships
SNAHC currently partners with several local dental school programs. One such partnership is with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School of Dentistry to provide direct patient support for three-week rotations. Dental students from Western University in Pomona, California also support our dental providers for seven-week rotations. Students from the Sacramento City College Dental Hygiene Program can be seen in our dental clinic every Monday for seven months out of the year.

Our health center also began an onsite partnership with Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) for mothers and their children up to age five who are found to be at nutritional and therefore, dental risk. This partnership provides access to early oral health education and prevention for at-risk mothers and their children.
