60 Minute Workshop
Educational Programs, Workshops, Seminars, New Idea Session, and Small Group Discussions
All dental schools must offer community-based clinical experiences to their students. Beyond enhancing cultural competence and exposing trainees to diverse populations, these experiences also represent an untapped opportunity to immerse learners in interprofessional team-based care. In this session, you will learn about interprofessional collaborations in community-based care where dental students provide clinical care, train future medical colleagues in basic oral health competencies, work in clinic administration and help strengthen the safety net. During this workshop, you will apply these concepts to community-based experiences at your own institution, strengthening CODA compliance and preparing your students for the future of dental practice.
