Making Dental Referrals
Ideally, children should establish a dental home with a dentist by their first birthday. However, this is not always possible. As a primary care provider, you may already be working with local dental providers to transition your patients to comprehensive dental care.
Dental and medical providers working together in a community have been effective in addressing the needs of their patients. Hosting a meeting over a meal can be a nice way for medical and dental providers to meet each other and work together to improve dental referrals. If you located in Maine and interested in an opportunity to work with us to coordinate a fun Dining with Dental Providers and Medical Providers event in your area, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
