Ravenswood Family Dentistry (RFD) only serves adults that are registered patients of Ravenswood Family Health Center. However, RFD will provide care to any child that resides in San Meto County.
Opening Access to comprehensive dental care
Ravenswood Family Dentistry opened in April 2010. In the first 9 months 1,461 dental patients were seen. That's just the beginning. At full capacity, we expect to serve 8,000 patients annually.
Dental disease is 100% preventable, but oral health education is crucial
Some parents mistakenly think dental treatment for baby teeth is a waste of time since the teeth are going to fall out anyway. They don't realize that dental disease can spread to the child's permanent teeth, leaving her with a lifetime of poor oral health.
With regular dental care from the start—as soon as the first teeth come in—children can have healthy teeth for a lifetime.
Educating the Community
In collaboration with the Ravenswood City School District and local Head Start programs, RFHC has developed a Childhood Dental Screening and Referral program to identify and refer children that need dental care.
