Integration of oral health and primary care practice has been a strategy to increase access to oral health care for health center patients. An emerging trend for medical and dental integration is the use of dental providers in the medical setting. This session will review the results from the 2019 Integrated Models survey, assessing for health centers’ use of an embedded dental provider in the medical clinic. It will also review strategies to integrate oral health and primary care practice. Finally, this session will feature a panel of three health centers who will provide promising practices on how they have successfully integrated a dental provider into the medical clinic for early detection of oral disease and to increase access to preventive interventions.
