The topics of Oral Health Disparities and Cultural Humility will help define the issues and provide understanding on how these issues affect the dental/oral health of our patients.

Representatives of Delta Dental will be providing an overview of the Medi-Cal dental program and an innovative program called CalAIM, which is providing enhances payment for services to Medi-Cal patients.
