Increasing access to care is a priority across health disciplines. Dr. Bill Piskorowski, Associate Dean for Community-Based Clinical Education at the UCLA School of Dentistry and a clinical professor of dentistry, will discuss increasing access to dental care through service learning and what lessons this innovative approach holds for public health. Dr. Piskorowski pioneered this model at the University of Michigan and will develop an enhanced model at UCLA based on previous evidence. In this talk, Dr. Piskorowski  will explain why this model of care enhances the education of health discipline students while improving access to care for underserved populations.
