Free Oral Health Webinar Series
Oral Health for All Californians
Oral health is crucial to overall health but the systems that govern access to care are fragmented and complex.
Our partners have told us that knowing how to navigate oral health services is a priority in their communities.
CPEHN is excited to announce a FREE Oral Health Webinar Series this summer for advocates and community-based organizations!
We hope that you will join us and experts from across the state to learn about oral health, the Denti-Cal system, and successes and challenges in connecting our communities to better care.
Below is more information and a flyer. Please spread the word among your networks!
