Dentistry as Primary Care TeleECHO
Primary care is any healthcare delivered with the patient and community in mind. Oral health and good dental
hygiene are essential components of primary care and overall health. In this sense, dental teams serve as
members of the larger body of primary care providers in North Dakota. This teleECHO™ series is focused on
providing local training and case presentations to assist dental teams in providing comprehensive care to
members of our community.
