Seminar - 90 Minutes
Securing adequate funding is always a challenge in public health dentistry, and finding resources for services for older adults and people with disabilities is no exception. This session will explore innovative approaches for leveraging nontraditional resources to support oral health and dental care for older adults and people with disabilities. The session will discuss Civil Monetary Penalties (CMP) and options for applying them to oral health initiatives, as well as other strategies used to leverage alternative funding sources. Several states will share their innovative strategies, successes, and lessons learned when using funding from non-traditional funding sources.
