About the Symposium:

The UCSF Oral Health Alliance is committed to improving oral health and reducing oral health disparity among children in the underprivileged communities within the San Francisco Bay Area. Our mission is to incorporate appropriate trainings and evaluations, so that primary healthcare providers can readily identify early indicators of oral disease and make timely referrals to a dental home.

This Symposium will be the first in an annual series with this year’s theme being, “Interprofessional Education on Children’s Oral Health for Primary Care Providers.” Speakers from different health professions, including community health, dentistry and nursing, will deliver instructional presentations on developing interprofessional training programs to improve dental primary care, tackling oral health disparities, and increasing access of care to children in underserved communities.
