American Dental Association on-demand webinar
This presentation was the opening session of the ADA Virtual Connect Conference on Oct. 16, 2020. 

Overview
We all agree you cannot be healthy without a healthy mouth and that dental care is essential healthcare. But what does ‘essential’ really mean? Is oral health really considered essential in state and federal health policy? Given that U.S. health care reform will continue to be a major political issue going forward, there are important issues and opportunities for the dental care community to address. Hear how the ADA is proactively approaching this issue of oral health being essential.

Panelists
Natalia Chalmers, D.D.S., M.H.Sc., Ph.D.
Darwin Hayes, D.D.S., F.A.G.D.
Lisa Simon, M.D., D.M.D.
Jessica Stilley Mallah, D.D.S.

Moderator
Marko Vujicic, Ph.D.
