K-1 Dental Exam (OHA)
Effective January 1, 2007, an Oral Health Assessment (dental examination) by a licensed California dental health professional is required for children entering public school for the first time (at kindergarten or first grade). The Oral Health Assessment must be completed and returned to the school by May 31 of that first school year. Assessments done 12 months prior to school entry also meet this requirement. Obtain the form from the school or your dental health provider to complete.
Parents/guardians may sign a waiver of this requirement, which is found on the OHA form available at the school. There is no penalty or exclusion if this requirement is not met. The parent/guardian can call 800-675-2229 for assistance in finding a provider for the Oral Health Assessment.
All Grade 1 students
Must be at least 6 years old by Oct. 1 unless they have completed a year of public school kindergarten.
