CDHC………………….a new perspective Working remotely with teledentistry Based in a community clinic and providing care A community health worker with dental skills and a member of the dental team In the community promoting healthy living

Program Philosophy: Educate students who Will work in communities where residents have no or limited access to dental care Will come from the community in which they will serve Will understand the culture, language, barriers to care because they are members of the community

The CDHC Focus The CDHC’s focus is on reducing the oral health disparities by targeting social determinants of oral disease and improving access to dental care PRIMARY PREVENTION

Seven Roles of Community Health Workers Bridging/cultural mediation Providing health education and information Assuring people get services they need Providing informal counseling and social support Advocating for individual and community needs Providing direct services Building individual and community capacity

2006 – From the APHA CHW Special Primary Interest Group definition Frontline public health workers Trusted members of the community Serve as a liaison/link/intermediary between health/social services and the community Facilitate access to services and improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery Build individual and community capacity through a range of activities such as: outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support and advocacy.

Facts about CHWs Who receives services from a CHW? 71% of uninsured individuals 49 % of immigrants 41% of homeless individuals 31% of isolated rural residents and migrant workers Source: Background, resolution recognizing and supporting the work of Community Health Workers which is before the 110 th Congress in the 2nd session

Evaluation of the Project: Goals To evaluate a new dental team provider model through a thorough review of the pilot training program and field internship. To determine the value of the new dental team provider in a variety of practice settings.

Evaluation Questions Does the program contribute to improvements in access to oral health care? Has the program positively impacted oral health outcomes? Has the program impacted the financial sustainability of the dental health clinic sites? How can the CDHC initiative be improved post pilot?

Access and Patient Outcomes: Data Analysis Clinic Variation: Rural Urban Indian Health Limitations for Data Collection Practice management software Staff resourcesDevelop metrics for the evaluation Core indicators Site-specific indicators

Types of Data Collection Clinical profile Community profile Feedback from community stakeholders Outreach activity data Encounter data captured by clinic computersPatient satisfaction surveys Clinics are never identified in external reporting All data is confidential Fully HIPAA compliant and secure database

Patient Access and Outcome Metrics Implement school-based programs to improve access for children Improve access for a disease specific population Improve access to underserved populations Change in dentist productivity Assess clinic revenue impactChange in active patient rates

The Future: CDHC as a Career Ladder Residents of the community who are : High school graduates Dental assistants Dental hygienists Other health care/health service providers Community health care workers without dental skills

CDHCs can reach into the community Schools WIC Head Start LTC facilities and other institutional settings Social Service agencies Community dentists

Summary The ADA has committed substantial resources to developing and evaluating the CDHC as a new member of the dental team. We believe the CDHC is an ADA legacy program that dentists will be proud of for generations to come.
