The newly created ASDOH Dean’s Advisory Board held its inaugural meeting this week. Dr. Jack Dillenberg formed this group to provide ASDOH with an innovative, meaningful perspective on the future of oral health in the emerging health care system. Their role is to help ASDOH create the dentists of the future that will succeed in this evolving interprofessional health care environment.
The integration of oral health into primary care is essential to the success of the dental profession and the improved health of our patients. The board consists of CEO’s and senior executives of dental manufacturers, distributors, financiers and dental service organizations.
The group was so engaged that they decided to meet in six months rather than wait a year to review ASDOH strategic initiatives for the next three years.
