Sonrisas Dental Health was founded to expand dental care to include the children of farmworkers on the Coast of San Mateo County. Over the years, Sonrisas has grown to serve low-income, marginalized individuals from throughout San Mateo County and across the age span through our Access to Care program.
SDH patients are racially and ethnically diverse, including individuals who self-identify as Latinx (30%), Caucasian (31%), Asian (28%), and African American (1%) with 10% unknown. Many patients primarily speak a language other than English. Our bilingual staff speaks Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Tagalog, and Korean, so that we may more fully engage patients in their oral health care.
