Rocky Mountain Network of Oral Health Integration Awarded Sunset Health North Yuma Pediatric and Dental Department

With the Dental-Medical integration project; Sunset Health primary care providers will do an oral health screening during the Well Child visits for children from 0-40 months of age. These babies are seen by a Dental Hygienist in the clinic immediately after the medical visit for Caries risk assessment, teething/nutritional counselling, application of fluoride varnish on teeth, and referrals of children with high risk of caries to establish a dental home. This collaborative care provides opportunity for prevention of dental caries and early caries management, if any, before extensive damage occurs.
