Dental Check-ups Required for Your Child
California law (Education Code Section 49452.8) states your child must have a dental check-up by May 31 of his/her first year in public school. A California licensed dental professional operating within their scope of practice must perform the check-up and fill out Section 2 of the Oral Health Assessment Form. If your child had a dental check-up in the 12 months before he/she starts school, ask your dentist to fill out Section 2. If you are unable to get a dental check-up for your child, fill out Section 3. Return this form to the school no later than May 31 of your child’s
first school year.
