Welcome to the Dr. Earl R. Crane Children’s Dental Center

Dr. Earl R. Crane Children’s Dental Health Center
Established in 1949, the Dr. Earl R. Crane Children’s Dental Health Center provides complete professional dental services to uninsured children between the ages of 5 to 18 living in San Bernardino and surrounding communities including Colton, Rialto, Highland, and Muscoy.

The children of San Bernardino served by the Dental Center are from families of every ethnic, religious and racial background who do not have dental insurance or are underinsured.

Services are provided for a $20 fee, regardless of number of services provided. No child is ever turned away if they cannot afford to pay the fee.

Services include:

  • General dentistry provided by a full time dentist and dental assistant
    • Exams including X-rays and Cleanings
    • Fillings and Sealants
    • Root canals and Crowns
    • Extractions and Space maintainers
    • Nitrous Oxide
  • Oral Hygiene Instruction for Kindergarten students in the San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD).
  • Parent Education through San Bernardino City and County Schools.
  • Oral hygiene instruction for all dental patients
  • Referrals to dental specialists for minor oral surgery and orthodontics
  • Community outreach and education

We served 359 unduplicated patients with 4,801 services in 2017-2018.  Member volunteers reached approximately 4,400 Kindergarten students with classroom oral health education; 1,200 high school students received oral hygiene kits; and approximately 1,000 adults were reached through oral health community outreach. Over 8,000 oral hygiene kits were distributed overall last fiscal year.

Administration of the Dental Health Center is provided by a board of directors, comprised of members of Assistance League, community dentists, San Bernardino City Unified School District representatives, and an attorney from the community.

All new patients are welcome – contact the Children’s Dental Health Center at (909) 885-2045 to schedule your child’s appointment today.
