Calaveras County Says Oral Health Matters

Calaveras County, California, August 13, 2019 -- Calaveras Public Health is excited to announce the release of the Calaveras Oral Health Needs Assessment. The report tells the story of oral health in the county. The Calaveras Oral Health Program will use the needs assessment to direct the program to meet the oral health needs of the community. The Oral Health Community Needs Assessment is a study performed by the Calaveras County Health and Human Services Agency, Public Health Division, that showed that 76% of Calaveras residents valued their oral health, yet 68% of people have suffered tooth loss. Oral Health is a term used to talk about the health or your mouth, teeth, tongue, gums and upper throat. Poor oral health is linked to other health problems like as diet, heart disease, diabetes and cancers and as well as self-esteem, and school and work attendance. Cavities are one of the most common chronic diseases in the United States, yet they are 100% avoidable. A person with poor oral health can also have a hard time speaking, eating and smiling.





A Community Needs Assessment was done by the program to better realize the needs of the county. The data for the report was collected through 20 interviews and over 800 surveys from community members. The report shows the need for oral health education and better access to dental care. The findings from the report were used to write an Oral Health Improvement Plan for the Calaveras Oral Health Program.

“So it [oral health] impacts everything you do in life. I mean job wise, family wise everything because your smile is your first, you get your first impression of people by their smile. And mine’s been so messed for so long that, that I just got out of smiling, I just don’t smile anymore.” ~quote from an Oral Health Community Needs Assessment interview

Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing once a day and going to the dentist at least once a year will help keep your mouth healthy. For more information about the Calaveras Oral Health Program, please contact Public Health at 209-754-6460 or visit our website at http://publichealth.calaverasgov.us/Health-Education-Programs/Oral-Health

Calaveras Oral Health Program, helping make healthy smiles happen.

It’s Calaveras - many in the county are without dental insurance and unwilling to pay the cost of going to the dentist. They don’t have a problem buying cigarettes and booze, though.

Just useless local government offices finding ways to waste more taxpayer money. This very thing has been taught in elementary schools, years upon years. Parents have been passing this knowledge down to their children.

We can't save everyone from themselves, nor should we have to, or want to. Natural selection is a very good thing.

        Man you're the perfect Democrat voter, STUPID and they love YOU for your simplicity. You're already theirs. You believe in the vote for a Democrat and everything is FREEEEEEEE!!! Free Free Free vote for me is a vote for FREEEEEEE.
        Dummycrats have to be the dumbest people on the planet.
        Thank goodness our ELECTORS are not. Just like in 2016, they'll see these bunch of bozos and say HELL NO. Clinton was bad enough, there's no way we'll let a Democrat in the WH unless he's the janitor.
        FREEEEEEEEEE HAHAHAHAHAHAHA what a bunch of idiots you folks are.
        Unbelievable

          Well, I think you could use some better writing skills. The Democrat commentator made more sense in a single sentence than thais retarded response of yours. At least they could start a sentence with out using the same word over and over and over again..
          I bet you don't even have dentures, probably enjoy just swallowing .
          Most of the people I come across by the way round these parts, the ones living off welfare are white trash republicans. Hate to break it to you mr free free free.

            Sentence structure can be used for emphasis, but that aside he is stating the truth.

      All this crazy talk of going to the dentist. When I get a cavity I just pack some chew in it and the pain goes away.
      No big dentist bill and enjoyable spit too.
