Oral Health and Primary Care Integration: Optimizing Care Coordination to Improve Oral Health Access

Mar 16, 2022  02:00 PM  EST | Past Webinars |

Integration of oral health and primary care practice is a strategy to help increase access to care for all populations. The National Network for Oral Health Access (NNOHA) and the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) hosted a webinar discussing promising practices for oral health integration that accounts for the unique needs of special populations like residents of public housing with a focus on care coordination. This webinar featured a panel of two health centers that are leaders in medical and dental integration: Health Partners of Western Ohio and Albany Area Primary Health Care, Inc. Attendees learned how these two organizations implemented sustainable integration programs and engaged medical team members and health center leadership. Participants walked away with an understanding of how care teams support oral health education and treatment, and best practices for integration into primary care at health centers serving residents of public housing and other special populations.
