Partner Offerings

National Network for Oral Health Access (NNOHA) is accepting applications from health centers to participate in a virtual Teledentistry Learning Collaborative funded through NNOHA’s National Training and Technical Assistance Partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The Learning Collaborative will take place virtually from August to November 2022. The goal of the Teledentistry Learning Collaborative is to increase access to oral health services through synchronous teledentistry by using more efficient practice systems, patient engagement, provider recruitment/retention, and clinical improvements. Participating health centers will review and share strategies for using synchronous teledentistry beyond traditional emergency triage.

Online applications for the Teledentistry Learning Collaborative are due June 30, 2022.
