About the Beyond Transformation Resource Hub
The public health emergencies of 2020 led to innumerable shifts in healthcare delivery requirements. Out of necessity, the clinics participating in the multi-year, statewide Dental Transformation Initiative (DTI) halted or delayed their advancement of expanded dental services through partnerships with school systems. As clinics throughout Orange County consider if, when, and how to initiate, reinstate, or ramp up dental services in a post-COVID-19 environment, you may benefit from resources that support revisions, refinements, and operationalization of promising practices gleaned from DTI efforts.
The Beyond Transformation Resource Hub provides a variety of webinar presentations, tools, references, and other materials that can assist dental clinics as they work towards establishing expanded dental services and re-engage their partnerships with schools and early childhood education centers. The content leverages technical strategies, best practices, and lessons learned that can facilitate successful re-launch of those efforts.
Thank you for your continued commitment to increasing access to dental care and serving our most vulnerable communities.
