DentaQuest Institute Presents Early Childhood Caries Work at NOHC

Adam Richman, Quality Improvement Project Manager at the DentaQuest Institute presented the poster, Not Just Drilling and Filling: Adopting a Disease Management Approach to Manage Early Childhood Caries, at the National Oral Health Conference in Kansas City, Missouri on April 27, 2015.

Adam shared the rationale for the disease management approach for managing early childhood caries, the components of our disease management protocol, as well as the aim of our initiative and preliminary results with many interested colleagues. Because ECC is a common yet preventable disease, dental public health colleagues attending NOHC were inspired by the DentaQuest Institute’s work to prevent and manage ECC and were excited to learn more about future initiatives!
