In 2012, the Maryland Office of Oral Heath was awarded funding by the American Public Health Association to evaluate the law’s effects.
This webinar will feature Harry Goodman, DMD, MPH, director of the Office Oral Health, who will give an overview of the law; Deborah Levy, MS, founder of SuccessLinks, LLC and evaluation consultant who will discuss the evaluation and Sue Camardese, RDH, MS, the public health dental hygienist at Chase Brexton Health Services in Columbia, Md., who will speak about how the law has affected their dental program.
