Considering Chairside Primary Care in the Dental Clinic? There’s a Guide for That!

It’s been little more than two years since faculty at Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) and Northeastern University School of Nursing announced their intention to develop a novel interprofessional model of education and practice. The result: The Nurse Practitioner & Dentist Model for Primary Care (NPD Model). This exciting innovation integrates the delivery of chairside, nurse-led primary care preventive services with dental visits while educating nurse practitioners and dental students on how to work together as a team.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the major steps in implementing the NPD Model.
  2. Discuss lessons learned from the initial implementation of the NPD Model at HSDM.
  3. Utilize the NPD Model implementation guide.
