The Detroit Health Department wants to make sure all babies have a chance to celebrate their first birthday. We are here to provide services to help you and your family live your best lives.


My Community Dental Centers (MCDC) offers a wide variety of high quality dental services and help with other needs, like insurance and transportation.

Car Seat Safety

Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians can help you install your car seat the right way, and share information to help you keep your baby safe.

Infant Safe Sleep

All Detroiters must know their “ABCs”: the “ABCs” of protecting our babies while they sleep! Babies should be placed ALONE with nothing in their crib, on their BACKS, in a safety approved CRIB, and in a SMOKE-FREE environment. Learn more about the “ABCs” of infant sleep by attending a Safe Sleep Class. Call (313) 410-5264 to register.
