First and Third Thursdays, 12:30-1:30 p.m.
The purpose of this 6-session program is to build the capacity of dentists and their teams to identify and manage patients with oral pain or substance use disorders in the dental setting.
Topics will include:
We will select up to 25 community-based dentists, OHSU School of Dentistry faculty, OHSU dental preceptors, and OHSU School of Dentistry residents to participate based on their interest in the program, geographic distribution throughout the state, and ability to commit to attend the sessions. Community-based dentists and OHSU dental preceptors are encouraged to invite one other staff member such as a behavioral health specialist, dental assistant, or practice manager to participate in the sessions with them.
