This project is a new way to bring together the health science professions of nursing and dental medicine in working and learning situations. Dental and nurse practitioner (NP) students working in pairs will provide care to dental patients. Patients will receive oral exams and health screenings for cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, red and white blood cell counts, and, if desired, HIV.
