You’re Invited to the 2017 Wisconsin Oral Health Conference.

Building Bridges: Linking Medicine and Dentistry
A healthy mouth leads to a healthy body. Studies show that poor oral hygiene can increase risk for diabetes, heart attack, stroke and premature births. Join us at the 2017 Wisconsin Oral Health Conference, October 3-4 at the Holiday Inn and Convention Center in Stevens Point, as leaders in the health care community convene to develop exciting and innovative ideas around the integration of oral health and primary care.
The two-day conference will consist of lectures, interactive workshops and dinner Tuesday evening with keynote speaker, Marcia Brand, PhD, who will address the systemic and policy changes that must occur in order to integrate oral health into the current health systems, including professional training programs for primary care providers, health-care delivery setting process revision, and policy and payment reform. Keynote speaker, Patricia Braun, MD, MPH, will educate on models of collaboration between physicians and dental providers promoting an integrated approach to caring for patients.
This conference is designed for dentists, dental hygienists, health researchers, dental/health educators, legislators, public health officials, Medicaid/CHIP dental program staff, community health center personnel, Head Start workers, school nurses, students, health policy advocates and federally employed dental personnel – in short, anyone interested in collaborating to improve oral health of the public.
