Improving oral health outcomes
by integrating medical and dental care
This toolkit serves as a how-to guide for medical organizations seeking to fully integrate a dental hygienist into a medical care team. Medical-dental integration can take on various forms including:
- Oral health promotion by medical providers.
- Co-locating dental services on-site at primary care practices.
- Fully integrating dental hygienists into medical care teams.
Join the growing number of medical practices providing fully integrated dental hygiene services.
More than 73,500 patient visits took place in the first five years of the Colorado Medical-Dental Integration (CO MDI) Project.
