Improving Oral Health Using Telehealth-Connected & Community-based Teams
Paul Glassman DDS, MA, MBA, University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry
Dr. Paul Glassman has been appointed as a member of the Federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s expert panel on assessing healthcare quality measures. The panel was recently formed to provide comment on the state of national pediatric health care. Glassman was among 15 individuals selected from nearly 100 nominations for the 2011 expert panel and is the only dentist on the panel. His appointment serves as an outgrowth of the work that he and the staff of the Pacific Center for Special Care have done over the last several years on oral health outcomes measurement, quality improvement systems and innovative dental care delivery models for vulnerable and underserved populations. Dr. Glassman was also a member of the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) Committee on Oral Health Access that recently released the report on Improving Access to Oral Health Care for Vulnerable and Underserved Populations. This is a significant and prominent oral health report that addresses the barriers that millions of Americans who are not able to receive needed dental care services face. The report offers recommendations for changing funding and reimbursement for dental care; expanding the oral health work force by training doctors, nurses and other non-dental professionals to recognize risk for oral diseases; and revamping regulatory, educational and administrative processes. In addition, he is a former president of the Special Care Dentistry Association; he is co-director of the Pacific Center for Special Care at Pacific and co-director of the California Statewide Task Force on Oral Health for People with Special Needs and Aging Californians.
