If you are interested in learning more about addressing pediatric oral health in your primary care medical practice and are considering an in-office training by Washington Dental Service Foundation—but are still undecided—we invite you to learn more at this site.  If you would like to discuss any questions, feel free to contact us.


This course will help you get started providing oral health services to your young patients. By completing this course and passing an online assessment, you will be certified to provide oral health screening, oral health education, and fluoride varnish services, and bill the Washington State Medicaid program for these services for enrolled children.

Who Is This Course For?

This online course is intended for primary care providers and staff in practices that have already received the Washington Dental Service Foundation’s in-office training Preventing Dental Disease in Primary Care Medical Settings. If your practice has received the in-office training, but you did not attend the training, this course is appropriate for you. If your practice has not completed this training, please contact us to arrange an in-office training.

How Long Will This Course Take?

The course will take approximately 60 minutes to complete. It is designed to be completed from start to finish, but you can stop at any time and return later, picking up where you left off. Once you have completed the course, you can also come back at any time to review specific material.

Will I Get CME Credit?

Yes, primary care providers qualify for one hour of Category 2 CME credit.  A certificate will be available after successful completion of the end-of-course assessment.
