Our Primary Care Practice Quality Improvement component provides free on-site or virtual training to promote practice-based oral health quality improvement.
The purpose is to support primary medical practices integrate oral health services into their well-child visits, for children ages 0-6.
The offering includes a 1-hour training module followed by 6-months of expert Quality Improvement technical assistance tailored to individual clinics or practices.
Plus, 30-50 Continuing Medical Education credits and 20-25 Maintenance of Certification Part IV credits for meaningful participation.
