Between February and July 2015 researchers at the Oral Health Workforce Research Center (OHWRC) completed case studies at 8 FQHCs headquartered or operating satellite clinics in 9 states. The main objective of the study was to understand the barriers and facilitators to integration of oral health services with primary health care delivery in federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) across the United States. A secondary objective was to understand employment by FQHCs of a variety of novel oral health workforce to enable better access to oral health services in their delivery systems.
