The ADA Action for Dental Health addresses the need to provide care in the right place at the right time. Many articles focus on dental patients utilizing hospital ERs for pain management, often with no “dental home” or continuing treatment possible. This webinar will offer three strategies to direct people from the ER to the dental chair that can be adapted to any community.
