We proudly administer the Colorado Medical-Dental Integration Project.

The Colorado Medical-Dental Integration Project (CO MDI) integrates dental hygienists on to health care teams in medical clinics throughout the state. Partner clinics focus on providing care to populations that experience oral health inequities.

This model is unique in the nation because of its integration of oral health as a part of general health and well-being. Through CO MDI, clinics have provided over 70,000 visits for patients who otherwise may not receive care due to insurance status, transportation, geography, or socioeconomic status.
