Quality Improvement and Technical Assistance


Select Oral Health for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) QI Project

Physicians preparing for re-certification of the MOC Part IV can select pediatric oral health as their focus area for their office-based quality improvement project. It is designed so that physicians can demonstrate to patients, colleagues and health care organizations ongoing professional development that results in quality patient care.
