UW launches new program focused on pediatric oral health training

External Affairs

A University of Washington Health Sciences team led by the School of Dentistry is launching an interprofessional training program to improve access to dental care for children ranging in age from the first year of life through 5 years. Early Childhood Oral Health Training, or EchoTrain, will provide pediatric dental training directly to UW dental students, Shoreline Community College dental hygiene students, and students and trainees of the UW School of Medicine. Collaborative learning is also planned with faculty, students and trainees from not only UW Medicine but the UW’s Schools of Public Health and Pharmacy. Read more from the UW School of Dentistry.
