Well-Child and Oral Health Clinic

IU IPE partners with IU School of Dentistry and the IU/Methodist Family Medicine Center to provide comprehensive health and dental exams at the interprofessional Well-Child and Oral Health Clinic.

Dental (DDS), dental hygiene, family medicine residents, and physician assistant learners work in teams with children and their caregivers to improve oral health care and overall health.

The Well Child and Oral Health Clinic is an interprofessional education and collaborative practice model with a specific focus on health and oral health care for the pediatric population. Healthcare providers and learners conduct routine preventive health and school screenings, deliver recommended child and adolescent immunizations, conduct oral health assessments, provide fluoride applications, provide education on preventative health care topics, and refer to other specialists as needed.

The Well Child and Oral Health Clinic is held quarterly on Saturday mornings throughout the school year.
