(Learning, Oral Health, Technology, ADEA Events and Activities) Permanent link   All Posts

The dental safety net provides urgent and basic care for millions of Americans facing barriers to access—typically the uninsured, underinsured and those unable to pay for services out of pocket.

Join us Monday, October 27, from noon-1:00 p.m. for The Dental Safety Net and Access to Oral Health, the fourth webinar in the ADEA Policy Center’s Leading Conversations series. 

Academic dental institutions are finding new opportunities to educate dental students, residents and dental hygiene students about how to effectively care for underserved communities, and embrace their professional responsibilities as leaders in oral health.

Learning Objectives

This webinar will enable participants to:

  • Identify the systemic barriers that individuals, communities and populations face when accessing oral health services—and the current measures used to define the problem.
  • Describe the complexity of the dental safety net and its role in providing care to the underserved.
  • Explain the role of academic dental institutions in the dental safety net.

Listen for free. Invite your colleagues and participate as a group. Earn CE credit. Register at adea.org/dentalsafetynet.
