Sonrisas Dental Health, Inc is a non-profit dental center dedicated to providing access to quality dental care and oral health education to our community. We provide these services with dignity, respect and compassion. We offer two convenient locations in Half Moon Bay and San Mateo.

Sonrisas Dental Health, Inc. (SDH) provides access to quality, inclusive dental care and oral health education to all people in San Mateo County, with dignity, respect, and compassion. We works to improve the health of our community members through culturally sensitive, integrated care, with a focus on disease prevention. We have two conveniently located centers in Half Moon Bay and San Mateo, California, and through our clinics and our mobile dentistry program, SDH strives to create a dental home for all patients. Our services include: preventative dental care, mobile dental care, general and cosmetic dentistry, geriatric dentistry, pediatric dentistry, sedation dentistry, and accommodations for patients with special needs. Our bilingual staff can speak Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Tagalog, and Korean, and thus are prepared to engage patients in their oral health care.

SDH formed as a non-profit community clinic in 2001 in Half Moon Bay, CA to provide access to affordable dental care for low-income residents on the Coastside. In 2015, SDH programs and services expanded with a second site in San Mateo, bringing in new equipment and technology, as well as full accommodation for those with mobility and access limitations.

SDH’s programs are firmly rooted in collaboration with organizations throughout our county. In addition to our various activities in community settings, we have established close partnerships with entities such as the Peninsula Health Care District, the San Mateo County Farmworker Health Program, and Samaritan House to enhance their programmatic oral health goals. SDH is also a stakeholder of the San Mateo Oral Health Coalition and Healthy Community Collaborative, both working toward increasing the delivery of oral health services throughout San Mateo County.
