Hotline and Mandatory Reporter information for Dental Hygienists

Did you know that in the state of Colorado, dental hygienists are mandated by law to report suspected child abuse and neglect. In order to ensure you are equipped to fulfill this responsibility, the Colorado Department of Human Services launched a statewide hotline (1-844-CO-4-KIDS) in January of this year to provide one, easy-to-remember phone number for individuals to use from anywhere in the state to report.

CDHS also offers online mandatory-reporter training. If you haven’t already taken this training, we strongly encourage you to do so. In doing so, you will be arming yourself with the information you need to be an effective part of the safety net protecting children and youth in our state. More information is available on the CDHS website.
