who is the target population?
Our target population is the approximately 14,300 low-income San Francisco children ages 0 through 5 years who are Denti-Cal beneficiaries.
why this target population?
Recent data from comprehensive screening of kindergarteners in the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) and the Community Health Assessment conducted by SFDPH in 2016 has shown that untreated tooth decay rates and caries experience rates are increasing, from 32.1% in 2013 to 34.9% in 2015. Even more distressing, there are deep disparities in caries experience rates by race/ethnicity, with our children of color carrying the biggest burden of caries.
