“Implementing the work is much more challenging.”
“The aim is to create system change Statewide in primary care clinics by integrating dental hygienists into medical care teams to provide early prevention and intervention.”
“It is really exciting to see the collaboration that is occurring.”
“There isn’t a large cost to implementing this project into the clinic.”
“We break down what that workflow looks like.”
“You just have to make sure the hygienist comes in before the nurse does the vaccines.”
“It is hard to pick one success story because we are seeing the impact across the state.”
“We can prevent kids from having to go to the hospital for full mouth restorations.”
The health and wellness of the dental hygiene community and the patients you serve are our top priority. We are closely monitoring developments surrounding COVID-19 and will continue to keep you informed. For more information from ADHA, visit https://www.adha.org/covid19.
