Treating Patients With IDD
This learning series is a product of the Texas Oral Health Coalition’s 2022 monthly webinar series with Dr. Mark Bullock, DDS.
Each self-instructional session below is worth dental continuing education credit. These sessions are meant to view as a series but can be viewed separately as they are offered as standalone courses. As part of the evaluation process, self-instructional courses contain post-training questions so learners may assess their mastery of the material.
Comments on Dr. Bullock’s Live Courses:
I’ve been following the TxOHC newsletters and wanted to reach out to tell you how impressed I am with the attention your organization has given to addressing the dental needs of individuals with IDD. The education piece is amazing, most providers have no idea how to work with group homes and state agencies. Previously working in HCS and ICF settings as a nurse I know the struggle is real from staffing to transportation to finding funding and securing providers for service.
This is a topic that needs to be discussed more due to the amount of kids and adults with special needs.
Sharing this information with my team.
Excellent topic series and speaker, great practical information.
Very informative presentation.
