Harvard Dental Center has partnered with Northeastern University School of Nursing and the Nurse Practitioner–Dentist Model for Primary Care (NPD Model) to help connect our patients with primary care.
We are inviting our patients who don’t have a primary care provider (PCP), or who haven’t seen their PCP in over a year, to participate in this new program, which involves seeing a Nurse Practitioner for a wellness visit on the same day as your dental visit. The wellness visit can identify health risks and help you to reduce them. At the visit, our health care team will take a complete health history and can provide several other services:
- Screenings for depression, risk for falling, and other problems,
- A limited physical exam to check blood pressure, weight, vision, and other things depending on your age, gender, and level of activity,
- Recommendations for other wellness services and healthy lifestyle changes,
- Help you find a primary care provider if you don’t have one.
Call 617-432-1434, and ask the Phone Specialist about scheduling an appointment for a wellness visit with the Nurse Practitioner.
