Grand County was one of the first counties in the State of Colorado to implement Cavity Free at Three. The Grand County Public Health Department was awarded the first grant in 2008 and has been putting fluoride on children since that time.
Cavity Free at Three is a statewide effort to prevent oral disease in young children. The effort aims to engage dentists, physicians, nurses, dental hygienists, public health practitioners, and early childhood educators in the prevention and early detection of oral disease in pregnant women, infants, and toddlers.
Our goal is simple: We want all children in our state to be cavity free by the time they reach age three.
Dental disease is the number one chronic disease of children in America, yet it is a preventable disease.
Grand County Public Health has seen hundreds of children since implementing this program.
