Healthy Mouth, Healthy Child: Improving Pediatric Oral Health in TN
Tuesday, July 26th
11 AM – 12 PM CST
The link between oral health and overall health is often overlooked, but poor oral health can have detrimental impacts on a person’s physical health and their quality of life. Join TJC for a 1-hour webinar with Dr. Raquel Johnson, an assistant professor in Pediatric Dentistry and the Pediatric Dentistry Residency Program Director at Meharry Medical College.
Dr. Johnson will present on the importance of pediatric and adolescent oral health. She will discuss some strategies for reducing oral health disparities in our state, such as establishing dental homes for children by the age of one, investing in school-based dental services, and increasing the prevalence of medical-dental collaborations.
