nda-health-now%e2%94%aclogo-white-backgroundThe National Dental Association has embarked on a national, community-based, grassroots health initiative. It replicates and takes to scale key features of the Deamonte Driver Dental Project (DDDP), the award winning initiative based in Prince Georges County, MD and the Washington, DC metro area, that helped Maryland move from dead last in oral health care to number ONE in the country. NDA-HEALTH NOW® is focused on disseminating information about oral health to the public, through its web site website that provides information to patients about dental health. Through these robust healthcare outreach and educational activities, the program is highly effective in promoting the interests of dental professionals. The project features plans for “mixed-use” mobile health units equipped for medical screening, vision screening, and dental services; but is also designed for implementation with or without the mobile units.
