Web-based Training

Posted on: September 29, 2011

Bright Smiles from Birth is pleased to offer web-based trainings of the oral health curriculum.  Web-based trainings are completed online by watching a video and answering questions.  The video was recorded by a dentist trained to present the Bright Smiles presentation.  Because trainings are conducted at your convenience, all the medical staff is encouraged to complete the online training, which is needed to receive Medicaid reimbursements.  Providers who complete the training are eligible for CME credit.

Please begin by registering on the Bright Smiles from Birth website, www.brightsmilesfrombirth.org.  Once you are registered and have logged in, you will be prompted to complete the course “Bright Smiles from Birth: An Oral Health Education Program.”   Participants must complete the post test and evaluation to be registered to receive reimburstment for application of fluoride varnish.

Bright Smiles from Birth provides information on oral health in children under three including the pathogenesis of early childhood caries, assessing risk for early childhood caries, performing oral health assessments and application of fluoride varnish. Physicians and Nurse Practitioners who complete a Bright Smiles from Birth training are eligible to receive a maximum of 1.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ towards the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award*
