Oral Health risk assessment is based on the premise that persons are not equally likely to develop oral health problems. For example, underserved populations are at a higher risk of developing oral health diseases and need more preventive oral health care and treatment. Oral health risk assessment involves identifying patients’ risks or protective factors that may impact their oral health. This webinar will review key concepts concerning oral health and share tips and toll for implementing oral health risk assessment into your practice.

Learning Objectives:
• Review key concepts concerning dental caries and oral health
• Discuss AAP and ADA recommendations for practitioners
• Share tips and tools for implementing oral health risk assessments into your practice
