Due to factors beyond their control, millions of Americans struggle to access the dental care delivery system. These "upstream" influences comprise numerous social determinants of health including geographical location, physical environment, race, ethnicity, documentation status, income, language and employment. This interactive session explores methods you can utilize to impart knowledge about social determinants and health disparities to students. You will learn how to assess curricula specific to these factors and how to utilize an experiential pedagogical tool, a poverty simulation, to help students understand why attainment of optimal oral health remains a challenge for many Americans.
