An I-Smile Coordinator provides care coordination and support to families with children who need dental care. The I-Smile Coordinator can help with: Setting up dental appointments, providing reminders of when the dental appointment is, arranging for transportation to the dental appointment, and providing education on oral health care. To find your local I-Smile program, visit our coordinator map.

Dental floss can clean places where a toothbrush cannot reach. As soon as a child's teeth touch, a parent should begin flossing. Usually children can floss their own teeth at about 9 years old.
