How CMS addresses oral and overall health through partnership and policy (Ep 113)

How CMS addresses oral and overall health through partnership and policy Listen in as your host, Matt Crespin, MPH, RDH, FADHA, discusses oral and overall health with Natalia Chalmers, DDS, MHSc, PhD, the first-ever Chief Dental Officer in the Office of the Administrator at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Dr. Chalmers highlights ways in which CMS is collaborating with organizations like ADHA to improve the public's oral and overall health and access to oral health for all CMS beneficiaries through all their programs – Medicare, Medicaid and Marketplace. From medical-dental integration and improving the oral health of seniors to new payment opportunities for providers, CMS develops and operationalizes policy and programs that support health for all people served by these programs, regardless of their differences, as a key to reducing disparities and advancing health equity. Matt also dives deeper into some ADHA23 Annual Conference highlights and provides other timely updates from the association. For details and registration for the ADHA23 Annual Conference visit Details on the ADHA Professional Fellows Program can be found at
