More physician assistant programs teaching oral health

Physician assistants are particularly useful for doing oral exams in children, especially for underserved populations and in rural areas, according to Dr. Mark Deutchman, a professor in both the medical and dental schools at CU. The university began incorporating dental education into its physician assistant curriculum in 2009, largely through the efforts of Deutchman.
