This forum will be the first of its kind: a cross-collaboration of five major UCLA departments (Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Public Health and Public Affairs) to discuss and find feasible solutions for oral health policy changes (with a focus on Early Childhood Caries) through a lens of "Equity and Social Justice". This is a pioneering event for systems-wide change in both the delivery of oral health care policy and primary health.
