Trauma Informed Dental Care (Webinar)

January 8, 2020 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

Quick Link:

Please join MPCA for a webinar series entitled: Oral Health is Primary Care.

This webinar is the second installment of our 4-part webinar series entitled: Oral Health is Primary Care. Because dental patients with a history of traumatic and adverse experiences are more likely to engage in negative health habits and to display fear of routine dental care, the Trauma-Informed Care framework and approach can guide dental care provider interactions with many types of traumatized patients.

In this webinar, Jenn McCarthy, EdD, MEd, MS, LCPC, Senior Program Coordinator, HealthCentric Advisors, will provide an overview of the trauma-informed care approach and practical implementation strategies, highlighting the basics of establishing a trauma informed approach. She will explain the concept of universal precautions for trauma and identify strategies participants can apply to create a more trauma informed practice.

Dental CEs available pending approval of application.
