ABCD is a dental program for children under 6 years old who have Apple Health for Kids (Medicaid/Provider One). ABCD spreads the word on the importance of early dental care to the prevention of decay, and connects kids to dentists who are specially trained to work with young children. Kids enrolled in ABCD receive dental exams, fluoride varnish, family oral health education and other dental care as needed.
To enroll in ABCD or get help finding a dentist for your children, please call 360-788-6594 or email us at email@example.com.
WPAD connects low-income Whatcom County residents to local dentists who donate their services. Patients can receive care for their one most critical restorative dental need, such as a filling.

An application is required, and there may be a program fee of $10-$30 as well as additional fees for some dental services. Please call 360-788-6594 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about WPAD.
