Find a Dentist - RI Age One Dental Champions

The Rhode Island Department of Health's Oral Health Program has created the following Age One Dental Champion Directory, to easily find dental providers who have indicated that they work with very young children!

The RI Department of Health and TeethFirst! do not endorse specific dental providers, only that they will accept patients for the age one dental visit.  All dentists are licensed with the state of Rhode Island and volunteered to be an Age One Champion.  Please note that it may take a few phone calls to find a dental provider.  

For full information, including practice address, hours, and insurances accepted, please click here.

If you are a RI dental provider who would like to be included, please fill out this form or contact Jim Beasley, RI Department of Health, 401‐222‐4602, or at
