Monday Roundtable Luncheon
While Rhode Island is always looking for new ways to encourage dental providers to come practice in the state, we are also finding ways to engage the workforce we have already. Through HRSA Oral Health Workforce funding, the RI Oral Health Program founded a 2-day Mini-Residency for anyone in the dental world to attend. The 2-day event has been held annually for the past 12 years with a different topic covered each year. Some of the topics include perinatal & infant oral health, communication tools and trends, and dentistry for vulnerable populations. This round table will give an overview of the logistics of setting up the mini-residency, how the topics were chosen and speakers selected, what has gone well and not so well, and sustainability planning for future years.
