Why Use A Dashboard?
Dashboards give a quick status update for key measures and allow Health Center leadership to monitor factors that affect quality and drive performance. Regularly seeing the data for an organization makes it much easier to respond quickly to areas of concern, or to change courses of action.
Dental Dashboard Measures
The Dental Dashboard consists of 15 measures that are organized into three categories:
CHC Population Health
1. Caries at Recall
2. Risk Assessment of all Dental Patients
3. Oral Evaluation and/or Risk Assessment of all Primary Care Patients
4. Sealants (6-9 year olds)
5. Sealants (10-14 year olds)
6. Topical Fluoride
7. Self-Management Goal Setting
8. Self-Management Goal Review
9. Treatment Plan Completion
Fiscal and Operational Sustainability
10. Recall Rates
11. No Shows
12. Charges (Production) Per Encounter
13. Encounters Per Hour
14. Direct Cost Per Visit
15. Recommendation to Family and Friends
Health Center Dental Dashboard User's Guide
The User’s Guide is a companion to support the implementation and use of the Dental Dashboard. The in-depth document gives users more details about:

These measure specifications are provided by the Dental Quality Alliance (DQA) as technical support to support NNOHA’s Sealants Learning Collaborative (2017-2020). Some of the measures in this document do not necessarily align with national standards. These specifications are meant for use for monthly reporting within quality improvement (QI) applications within practices. Reliability assessments of the measure scores have not been conducted, and the measure specifications are not intended for use in accountability applications. For an in-depth discussion on difference between accountability and quality improvement measures, visit the National Quality Measures Clearinghouse.
