Team-Based Care Webinar Series

Oral Health: Full Partners on the Team

March 21, 2019 | 3 p.m. EST

Health centers are leaders in recognizing oral health as an essential element of primary care. 14% of total visits at health centers in 2017 were for dental care (HRSA, 2017). Many health centers are looking to expand or enhance their oral health services. Health centers are committed to raising a generation of children that is caries free, while providing preventive and restorative services to all.

Health center patients often have complex healthcare challenges that are significantly affected by their oral health status. We can improve overall health by creating access to excellent oral health services in the context of team-based care. This session will bring strategies from the field showing how effective integration, collaboration and mobilization of dental services significantly improves health. Experts will discuss the clinical, organizational, data and technical opportunities and challenges to advancing or enhancing your model of oral health in team-based care.
