Receive Free CME & MOC Credit and Help Transform Oral Health for LA County Children

Over half of California’s children experience tooth decay by kindergarten. You can help reduce that number and improve oral health for Medi-Cal children. More LA Smiles (a UCLA Dental Transformation Initiative funded by the California Department of Health Care Services) is offering a 6-Month Primary Care Practice Quality Improvement for Medical Providers to integrate oral health services into well-child visits for children ages 0-6.

Eligible Medical Providers can participate in free onsite or virtual training to receive 30-50 CME and 20-25 MOC credits with six months of support from a dedicated Quality Improvement Specialist. Providers learn to integrate preventive oral health services into their practice settings; these services include screening and risk assessment, fluoride varnish, and dental home referrals. This offering is open to Medical Providers, including pediatricians, family medicine physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and clinical support staff.

Enroll at morelasmiles.org or email moreLAsmiles@ucla.edu.

Please note: Free CME and MOC credits are available to Medical Providers only. Clinical staff who participate will receive a certificate of completion.
