Course Release Date: Wednesday, October 13, 2021
Course Expiration Date: Sunday, October 13, 2024
Statement of Need:
There are many vulnerable and underserved populations in oral health. Gaps in health and health care are often caused by the disconnect between medical and dental care and a fragmented system that has left 74 million people without dental insurance, leading to knowledge gaps and a lack of dental-medical collaboration and coordination in patient care. These issues are exacerbated in patients of color, often due to interpersonal racism.
This CME Outfitters BriefCase will feature patient case studies that illustrate disparities in oral health and practical steps dental health professionals can take to mitigate these in their own practice to eliminate barriers to equitable dental and oral health care in patients of color.
• At the end of this CME/CE activity, participants should be able to:
• Apply action steps to eliminate barriers to equitable dental and oral health care for patients of color.
