Abstract: Throughout the history of healthcare in the U.S., the delivery of primary medical care and behavioral healthcare has been separated from the delivery of oral healthcare. In recent years, research has confirmed that oral health is intertwined with both physical and mental health. These findings have led to a greater emphasis on finding ways to include oral health care in interprofessional education and practice.  Through a combination of information sharing and facilitated discussion, participants will be able to describe what is meant by oral health community collaborative practice, identify ways to create interprofessional collaborations in their community, and apply lessons learned to enhance the educational experiences of student providers.
