Improving the oral health care system is a wicked problem. A wicked problem is one that is complex, hard to define, involves multiple stakeholders and is interconnected with other problems. During this second in a series of webinars, we’ll talk about patient and consumer perspectives as we continue to explore efforts being made to reach a future state of oral health care that is equitable and value-based. Content and panelists spotlighted during this webinar series are featured within a recent special issue of the Journal of Public Health Dentistry focusing on value-based oral health care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the role of shared decision making in person-centered, value-based oral health care
  • Learn about a prevention-focused, value-based strategy that leverages monetary incentives to motivate healthy behavior
  • Understand the value of preventive care from the patient’s perspective
