University of Arizona Integrates Oral Health Education into Medical Curriculum


The University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix, in collaboration with Delta Dental of Arizona, is launching the Oral Health in Medicine Initiative (OHMI) to integrate oral health education into medical school curriculum. With an $850,000 investment from the Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation, the initiative aims to equip medical students with the skills and knowledge to recognize the connection between oral health and systemic health. The program will focus on vulnerable populations that often seek medical help for acute issues due to barriers such as financial constraints and lack of access to preventive care. OHMI will provide comprehensive training over 4 years, including classroom instruction and hands-on clinical experience. By partnering with Harvard University Schools of Medicine’s Center for Integration of Primary Care and Oral Health, the initiative seeks to bridge the gap between medical and dental care, ultimately improving patient outcomes and reducing healthcare costs.
