NEW YORK (PRWEB) May 08, 2019
Mediaplanet is proud to partner with the nccPA Health Foundation on this year’s “Access to Oral Health” campaign. This partnership highlights the importance of certified physician assistants (PAs) in bridging gaps to provide oral health access and care.
Certified PAs expand access to quality dental and preventative oral health care by providing frontline screening, risk assessment, counseling services, and referrals. These offerings are especially important for the nearly 58 million people in the United States who live in areas where it is difficult to access care. The 131,000 certified PAs are equipped to address how oral disease can affect chronic conditions, like diabetes and cardiovascular disease and educate patients about the importance of self-care.
Certified PAs practice in all settings and specialties. By educating about the links between oral health and overall health, certified PAs can help ensure both for patients.
