IDD Interprofessional Oral Health Clinical Experience

OHNEP’s new Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities Interprofessional Oral Health Clinical Experience Guide brings students from different health professions together for a team-building clinical rotation where they learn to more effectively provide whole-person care for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

This guide is a model used by NYU College of Dentistry and NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing for Dental (DDS) Students and Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP) students. Participating students conduct an oral health assessment, including history and intra- and extra-oral exam, and collaborate to develop a management plan to meet the oral health and overall health needs of patients with IDD. This model can be adapted for use by students from multiple professions and population foci.
