Can you train oral health care providers to provide both dental care and limited primary medical care? Is this a desirable path for dentistry? What services would these dentists provide? What health outcomes could be achieved? This symposium explores the possible future of this idea, including the concept of three levels of training: medically competent oral physicians; technically proficient dentists with less medical expertise; and mid-level providers. You will engage in debate with thought-leaders in dentistry and dental education about this possible future direction for dentistry.
