Colorado Medical-Dental Integration Project

CO MDI integrates dental hygienists into primary care medical settings and school-based health centers. The project aims to reach Coloradans with limited access to dental care due to location, insurance status and transportation issues. The foundation awarded 16 organizations funding in 2014. As part of this initiative the hygienists:

  • Provide preventive dental services.
  • Coordinate care with the medical care team.
  • Collaborate with community dentists.

An evaluation is examining the impact of CO MDI and its financial sustainability.
