Keep your smile happy and healthy.

Keeping your teeth healthy is one of the best things you can do for your overall health. That’s why First 5 San Joaquin, San Joaquin County Public Health Services, dentists, non-profit organizations, and other partners have come together as the San Joaquin Treatment & Education for Everyone on Teeth & Health (SJ TEETH) collaborative to help you have a healthy and happy smile. Our vision is to eliminate dental disease in children and promote a lifetime of dental health.


To take care of your gums and teeth, follow these five tips:

Item 1
Go to the dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings. Your child’s first dental visit should take place after that first tooth appears, but no later than their first birthday. Click to find a dentist close to you and schedule an appointment today.
Item 2
Practice good habits every day, like brushing twice a day and flossing at least once daily. This also helps reduce your risk of more serious health problems. Learn more.
Item 3
Avoid habits like smoking or chewing tobacco which stain your teeth, give you bad breath and can cause cancer. Learn more.
Item 4
Eat a well-balanced diet. Eating lots of sugary foods and drinks puts you at a higher risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Learn more.
Item 5
Take care of unexpected dental problems right away and call your dental office for help. If you are in pain, see your dentist right away or go to the emergency department. Learn more.
