Building Healthy Communities Together

Register Here!

   We are excited to announce the theme for this year’s annual oral health summit, Building Healthy Communities Together. A multi-factorial approach is required to address health inequity and this year’s summit focuses on the oral health aspect in a community’s overall health. Three different symposia were carefully designed to emphasize the multi-disciplinary integration of oral health into total health and highlight specific activities that demonstrate this integration within our own state. Along with featured speakers, there will also be two panel discussions where experts share important information to improve patient and provider outcomes.
   Please join us for this fun, fast an informative lecture series where attendees can earn up to 14 CEUs November 9-11, 2017 at the Omni Colonnade in San Antonio, TX. For more summit information including speakers and topics, please visit the Summit page.
