Dental Health

The Dental Health Program provides education and clinical services throughout DeKalb County. The goal is to promote good oral health.
Clinical services are available to:

  • children and teens (ages 3-20)
  • pregnant women
  • adults age 60 and over
  • persons referred by DeKalb County Board of Health’s HIV clinic
  • persons of any age with a severe dental emergency
  • others on a space-available basis

The Board of Health’s dental fees are similar to those in private practice. However, fees may be reduced based on household income. Payment is expected at the time of service. Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids clients are welcome.

The dental primary prevention program offers education, screenings and dental sealants at schools and other community sites.

A smile can last a lifetime – if you take care of it.
Follow these easy steps to keep teeth and gums strong and healthy.

  1. Brush teeth and gums with fluoride toothpaste, and floss at least twice a day, especially after eating breakfast and before bedtime.
  2. Visit the dentist regularly.
  3. Limit the number of times you eat snacks each day… and remember to practice healthy eating and get plenty of calcium.
