Underserved populations face unique challenges in obtaining quality, affordable oral health care. The Pacific Center for Special Care is pleased to offer several professional education programs throughout the year which are open to anyone interested in learning more about caring for the oral health of underserved people.
We offer programs for a wide range of professionals including dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, dental office staff, nurses, social workers, caregivers and group home staff. Although our courses are focused on supporting dental professionals to work more effectively with people with developmental and other disabilities, often family members of someone with a special need find our programs very helpful.
