Two positions were created as a result of her practicum internship at the Oklahoma City Indian Clinic where she performed screenings, and provided oral hygiene instructions and fluoride treatments in their women's health clinic. Initially they had her focus on only expectant mothers, but quickly realized any patient could benefit from having these services provided to them.

Jennifer Adamo, EPDH, COSE

PRACTICUM LEVEL

Eugene, OR

Contact: [email protected]

Jennifer's practicum was completed as a paid expanded practice dental hygienist on an integrated team. Her supervisor stated she was instrumental in the launch of the program and continues to be a relied-upon advocate for integrated oral health. She noted the vast benefits of having an RDH on an integrated care team, and mentioned the most important thing as the knowledge and expertise Jennifer brought to the care team, since medical providers receive very limited training on oral health. They felt adding a registered dental hygienist to their team helps address significant gaps in care, and enables them to provide "whole patient" centered care.

For her practicum, Karen educated patients in a biofunctional medical office. She rose awareness of the oral systemic link, and her supervisor said having an RDH on every collaborative care team just makes sense. Karen has vast additional training and education beyond dental hygiene, but she still found the certificate program comprehensive and valuable.
