Live Webinar 4/19/22
This webinar provides a brief summary of the NIH-funded National Dental PBRN goals and characteristics of its 7800 dental practitioner members, focusing on practitioners from community and public health settings. Webinar participants will review and discuss data from two studies focusing on COVID-19 topics. The CORE Registry study of 1537 active practitioners identified changing infection control measures during the pandemic and confidence levels about the sustainability of dental practice. The recently completed CARAD study survey of 537 network dentists (including CHC/PH) examines the attitudes, readiness, and barriers to providing COVID-19 and other (flu, HPV, etc.) vaccinations at dental offices. For each study, data from CHC/PH participants will be highlighted. Never-before-seen data will be presented.
