The Elimination of Dental Disease (EDD) Collaborative is building of the success of a learning session held in Boston, MA in February. Five community health centers (CHC) from five states met to learn and share knowledge on oral disease management and prevention. Clinical protocols for self-management goal setting and risk assessment tools were the focus of much of the discussion, but quality improvement methodology and data measurement were also considered.
Collaborative partners returned to their clinical sites energized to implement and spread the EDD protocols and processes. Sites will continue to measure and report their outcomes and the quality improvement will continue!
