Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Abstract: Bringing oral health education and dental careers exposure to underserved rural and urban populations is the focus of this collaborative presentation. Through health professions students in inter-professional community outreach efforts, this Oral Health and Careers Program uses best practices, clinically accurate, and age-appropriate information to educate children and communities about oral health issues. The program also offers education, encouragement, and exposure to opportunities to become a future dentist, dental therapist, dental hygienist, and dental assistant professional in communities with identified oral health professions shortage areas. The Southern MN AHEC, Urban MN AHEC, University of MN School of Dentistry, Rice Regional Dental Clinic, Native American Community Clinic, and the American Dental Association partnered to successfully bring this program to underserved Minnesotans.
