1st Look Program

Developed by the Agency in partnership with the state's pediatric dentists and pediatricians, the 1st Look Program is designed to reduce early childhood caries by encouraging primary care physicians to perform dental risk assessments, provide anticipatory guidance, apply fluoride varnish when indicated, and refer children to a dental home by age one.

Children already seen by a dentist do not qualify for the 1st Look Program. Participating primary medical providers (PMPs) must first obtain certification by completing a Medicaid-approved training course.
