  • 17% of children in Washington State have a special need; half of these children have mild-moderate special needs.
  • Many individuals with special needs do not have access to regular and ongoing dental care.
  • Through information provided at this site, we hope more of these individuals will have access to dental care and receive home-based dental prevention activities.
