Webinar: Equitable Access in Orthodontics
Thursday, July 30 – 11 a.m. – Noon

Join A Smile for Kids to explore the role of access to orthodontics in health outcomes for underserved youth.

Orthodontics does more than straighten smiles, especially for young people who desperately need it.

A Smile for Kids fills a gap in Medicaid coverage by providing much-needed orthodontic care to diverse young people across Oregon.

Why does this access matter? What are the equity and health outcomes related to this care?

Hear from ASK Executive Director Christian Moller-Andersen how access to orthodontics can:

  • Better young people’s overall health and self-confidence.

  • Develop resilience in youth who have experienced trauma.

  • Increase equitable outcomes for underserved populations.

We’ll hear from panelists:
Angela Sears, Program Coordinator, Spirit Mountain Community Fund.
Sara Mishalanie, Community Research Liaison, OHSU Community Research Hub in Central Oregon.

Register now for this live webinar. Spaces will fill up!

Please forward this invitation to your peers in the health care, non-profit, social services world who care about moving social determinants in Oregon's communities inequitable ways.
