ASDOH hosted the AZ Developmental Disabilities Planning Council Board Meeting. At the meeting, the council reviewed the just released 2011 Report: Oral Healthcare for Adults with Developmental Disabilities in Arizona. There was a great deal of interest and conversation about partnering with ASDOH to help meet these needs over the next few years.
On Saturday, February 25, ASDOH hosted another event, a workshop, sponsored by First Things First Council, on early childhood oral health in partnership with Dignity Health Systems, formerly Catholic Health Care West. The audience of primarily dental hygienists and a few dentists was over 100 in attendance.
