RDHAP Alumni Reunion & California Statewide Task Force on Oral Health for People with Disabilities and Aging Californians Meeting
Friday, November 18, 2016 at 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry
155 Fifth Street, San Francisco, CA 94103
Please join the Pacific Center for Special Care for the Annual California Statewide Task Force on Oral Health for People with Disabilities and Aging Californians and RDHAP Alumni Event.
Dr. Jayanth Kumar, California’s first Dental Director will be leading this discussion about the inclusion of strategies in California’s State Oral Health Plan to improve oral health for people with disabilities and aging Californians.
We are bringing together clinicians, advocates and administrators to discuss and contribute to the California State Oral Health Plan 2016. This plan is designed to improve the oral health of Californians and achieve oral health equity. A variety of individuals, agencies, organizations and institutions concerned with the oral health and dental care of all residents of California are contributing this plan. The plan will give a roadmap for collective action to assess and monitor oral health status and oral health disparities, prevent oral diseases, increase access to dental services, promote best practices and advance policies.
It is essential that those who provide care to and are concerned with the oral health of elders and those with developmental and intellectual disabilities participate in the development of this plan.
