CDHS was founded in 2006, providing preventative services to children under the age of five at WIC sites. Since then we have grown and now offer our comprehensive preventative services in seven counties and over 60 schools throughout Southeast Minnesota as well as at our offices in the United Way of Olmsted County and our Austin, Minnesota. Additionally, CDHS offers restorative services at our offices in the United Way Building in Rochester, Minnesota and Austin, Minnesota.
We see patients by appointment only.
At Children’s Dental Health Services, equity, inclusion, and diversity are at the core of who we are. They are central to our mission and our impact. We are deeply committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive working environment where we value and develop employees of all backgrounds and experiences. We believe that a variety of opinions, approaches, perspectives and talents are the cornerstones of a strong, flexible and impactful organization.
CDHS seeks grant funding to provide services for uninsured children participating in our preventative programs at no cost to the family. Funding is based on location. Contact our office to see if funds are available in your community.

CDHS recently developed a sliding fee scale to assist uninsured children living below the federal poverty line to receive restorative dental care at a discounted rate. See the Sliding Fee scale page for more information.
It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to make sure our dental clinic is reaching out to as many communities as it can so kids everywhere have access to our dental services. We're fortunate to have some of the best dedicating their time, energy, and expertise to our cause.
In addition to many volunteers, Children's Dental Health Services employs a team of highly qualified and compassionate Dentists, Registered Dental Hygienists, Dental Assistants, and Administrative Staff.
