Health care will not be true whole-person care until oral health is recognized as an equal component of wellness, along with medical and behavioral health, in the eyes of payers and systems. This session will highlight the topics of whole-person care, data, policy, and workforce that the National Network of Oral Health Access (NNOHA), primary care associations, health center controlled networks, and NACHC are addressing to support community health centers as they adapt, emerge, and advance from the pandemic.
Understand the leading oral health issues that need to be addressed as health centers emerge from COVID 19.
Demonstrate how data can be used to evaluate and improve their health center’s oral health programs.
Identify the training and technical assistance resources available via NNOHA, OPEN, and state/regional PCAs, and HCCNs to address oral health.
