Description

Plenary: How Oral Health Can Change the World:

Improving the Well-Being of Children and Families Through System Redesign

In order to achieve large-scale change in the health, well-being, and economic mobility of children and families, we must begin to think about oral health outside of the boundaries to which it has resided in for too long. Issues of oral health access, disparities, and outcomes are not simply oral health issues, but societal issues. Without a strong commitment to redesigning the systems that deliver care, we won’t break through the noise and achieve lasting results.

This panel will explore how oral health can play a larger role in ensuring all children and families have the opportunity to succeed in life. It will look at how systems redesign, including payment reform, measurement and evidence-based decision making, and collaborative action across sectors, can unleash new and innovative ways to care for patients. Following the keynote speakers and a reaction panel, there will be time for a facilitated discussion with audience members.
