AB 648 (Low): Meeting the Dental Care Needs of California’s Children Spreading the Virtual Dental Home

The California Dental Association and The Children’s Partnership are co-sponsoring AB 648 to ensure the Virtual Dental Home (VDH)—an innovative and cost-effective system for providing dental care to California’s most vulnerable children and adults in community settings—can be spread across the state.

AB 648 would:

  • Authorize a one-time, $4 million General Fund appropriation to establish a Virtual Dental Home grant program, under the leadership and direction of the State Dental Director, for the purpose of expanding the VDH into the state’s areas of greatest need; and
  • Authorize the allocation of grant funds for activities that support VDH implementation, including training, community based learning collaboratives, technical assistance and equipment.
