IRVINE, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--LIBERTY Dental Plan (LIBERTY) continues to innovate and be a champion for whole health by partnering with the Center for Oral Health, Health Net Dental, Access Dental Plans and medical providers in the program, Early Smiles, Sacramento. This new program will help increase the number of children receiving fluoride varnish in the Sacramento area – a critical treatment that helps prevent further dental issues later in life.
“It's unique programs such as this that will make a significant impact in our future”
This Sacramento based program is holding a free Continuing Medical Education (CME) training for physicians on how to apply the fluoride varnish Thursday, January 12, at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
The implementation of this program is believed to be a true demonstration by Geographic Managed Care (GMC) Dental Plans to address children’s lack of oral health checkups – and treatment. Ultimately, the training schedule will be further developed with the program goal of positively impacting 12,000 children in the first year.
“It's unique programs such as this that will make a significant impact in our future,” said Dr. Amir Neshat, LIBERTY’s CEO and Founder. “Oral health is a vital part of whole health and physicians will certainly benefit from the support of Oral Health experts to help respond to the needs of children’s dental health, and to refer children to dentists and specialists who understand each family’s whole health issues. We are proud to lead these collaborative relationships to improve the health of children.”
By empowering physicians and pediatricians, LIBERTY Dental Plan is raising the bar for oral health through collaboration, innovation and patient-centered care.
