The Pennsylvania Office of 95 Health PORH is funded by the DentaQuest Institute DQI to deliver the Medical, Oral Expanded MORE Care Collaborative to eight federally-designated 95 Health Clinics RHCs in Pennsylvania and one clinic anticipated to become an RHC in the near future. The Oral Health Education for the Medical Professional and Patient project will facilitate the current project to be expanded to reach more RHCs while further educating medical providers on the oral health resources available to them through NN/LM. A series of four webinars will be developed on the following topics: 1. Oral health disparities; 2. The oral-systemic connection; 3. Oral health resources available through MedlinePlus; and 4. The opportunities available through MedlinePlus Connect. The webinars will be self-guided and available for any employee of an RHC in Pennsylvania. Participants will receive free CME credits following the successful completion of a post-test at the end of each module. Finally, the nine clinics currently participating in the MORE Care Collaborative will purchase iPads to be used by patients and their families in the clinics' waiting areas. The iPads will allow 86 and families to the gain oral health knowledge and use interactive, educational 86's games available on MedlinePlus.
