Wisconsin Medical Dental Integration
The Wisconsin Medical Dental Integration Project (WI-MDI) is a collaboration funded in part by Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin at the Medical College of Wisconsin and the Delta Dental of Wisconsin Foundation. The project will use a quality improvement framework and focus on integrating dental hygienists into medical teams to increase the utilization of dental services for children ages birth to 5 years.
Organizational partners include Children’s Health Alliance of Wisconsin, Medical College of Wisconsin, Wisconsin Dental Association, Wisconsin Dental Hygienists’ Association, Wisconsin Primary Health Care Association and American Academy of Pediatrics Wisconsin Chapter.
