|MOC Fluoride Varnish Project|
The Ohio Association of Community Health Centers and Nationwide Children’s Hospital are proud to announce the nation’s first collaboration to sponsor the implementation and demonstration of a quality improvement project in practice using the American Board of Medical Specialties Maintenance of Certification (ABMS MOC®) program. OACHC gained sponsorship from Nationwide Children’s Hospital to provide Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credits for the execution of a fluoride varnish quality improvement program within Ohio’s 43 Community Health Centers. This program is based on the Early Childhood Oral Health Initiative (ECOH) that integrates preventative oral health practices within the primary care settings to improve young Ohioans oral health outcomes.
The ECOH Initiative has been active in Ohio’s health centers since 2008. It enables access and integrates oral health screenings as a standard of care during well-child checks for children nine to thirty six months of age within community health centers in Ohio.
ECOH Initiative goals:
Nationwide Children’s Hospital functions as the external sponsor organization of MOC credits for providers. The ABMS MOC® was developed to assist that physicians in attaining their goal of lifelong learning and competency.
DentaQuest Institute is excited to share new video resources on how to speak with caregivers and patients about various topics related to Early Childhood Caries (ECC) prevention and management. There are seven short (1-3 minute) videos that address many of the scenarios providers face every day. We hope these resources are useful and help you to better navigate these topics with patients and families. A special thank you to the Boston Children’s Hospital team (particularly Dr. Zameera Fida).
