Oral health webinar on improving care and reducing costs

Oral health is linked to overall health, and mounting evidence suggests that addressing oral health can improve patient care, improve population health and reduce costs. In this webinar, a leading researcher will share findings from a study of private insurance claims linking treatment of gum disease with significantly lower costs for individuals with diabetes and other chronic conditions. You will also hear about a program under way at Hennepin Health in Minnesota to connect patients with regular dental care and prevent costly visits to hospital emergency departments. And NASHP will provide an overview of a new brief and online toolkit that explore these topics and draw out lessons for state policymakers.
