1 hour

Despite progress, disparities in access to dental care and oral health outcomes persist — particularly among underserved populations. One significant challenge: lack of comprehensive and accurate data, which makes it difficult for oral health providers to deliver culturally specific and linguistically accessible care. 

Join CareQuest Institute and the National Association of Community Health Centers for a webinar that will provide a fresh look at the state of oral health equity data. Our expert panel will discuss data collection tools and standards, and then offer solutions on how to turn that information into practical solutions that can meet the needs of specific patient populations.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain how oral health equity data gaps impact oral health care for unique patient populations, including Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders. 
  • Identify specific roles and remedies to eliminate oral health equity data gaps.
  • Recognize the value of disaggregated data in developing public policies to achieve health equity.
  • Discuss how to use oral health equity data to improve care for unique patient populations.
