Clinical Trainings for Medical Providers

Deny Tooth Decay

Our No-Cost Clinical Trainings provide in-person or web-based trainings to promote pediatric caries prevention and disease management for medical providers.

This component helps medical providers gain an understanding of the prevalence and severity of caries, the rationale for risk-based care and how to feel comfortable integrating oral health assessments for pediatric patients. The clinical training program is led by UCLA faculty in collaboration with various program partners and eligible providers can receive free CME credits through the Overview and Advanced courses.
