Live webinar 11/9/20
Oral health and behavioral health are intimately connected, which can impact health outcomes. Individuals with behavioral health concerns are more likely to have poor oral health. Poor oral health can also result in behavioral health impacts. Individuals in public housing are at risk for experiencing both poor behavioral and oral health outcomes. Dental providers have a unique opportunity during dental appointments to assess behavioral health status and link patients to behavioral health care. In partnership with the National Center for Health in Public Housing, this webinar will review behavioral health data and resources from a recent survey of residents of public housing. The webinar will also highlight how a health center dental program located in public housing integrates behavioral health screening and referral into oral health care.
