The Virginia Department of Health, in collaboration with the Virginia Dental Association, is offering a two-day training for general dentists wishing to increase their ability to provide care for children with special health care needs and very young children.
Speaker: Dr. Matthew Cooke, a pediatric dentist and the Director of Healthy Athletes, Special Olympics of Virginia. In addition to his pediatric dental background, Dr. Cooke is a physician and dental anesthesiologist, giving him a unique perspective on children’s oral health needs.
The VDA has been working with the Virginia Health Care Association (VHCA) to identify ways our organizations can work together and address the critical need for dental care for our senior citizens residing in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. The great majority of these seniors lack dental insurance, creating a serious access issue which results in poor oral health and affects these patients’ overall health.
