CMA3 - Maximizing Dental Care in a Reimagined Oral Health Environment

Aug 31, 2020 4:00pm ‐ Aug 31, 2020 5:30pm


The COVID-19 pandemic required health center dental clinics to respond by limiting care to emergencies. Recovery issues addressed by successful dental programs included procedure classification by risk, revised workflow, infection control, and tele-dentistry. NACHC’s Quality Center Value Transformation Framework provides a conceptual model to guide systems change in three domains: Infrastructure, Care Delivery, and People. Reimagined oral health care must address these domains, including expansion of care team members involved in the provision of oral health services and use of dental care team members for the services they are uniquely trained to provide. Lessons learned during reopening can be applied to maximize dental care in a value-based care environment. This session will provide a view of these issues from national, state, and local perspectives.
