In 2015 North Carolina passed the Health Information Exchange Act, which mandates that all providers who receive state funds for the provision of health care services must connect and submit patient clinical and demographic data to the state-designated health information exchange by certain dates in 2018 and 2019. This article explains the statute and the benefits of health information exchange to support better oral health care.

The bi-directional relationship among oral health and other systemic diseases and conditions provides a strong rationale for integration of oral health and primary care practice. Patient care services may be coordinated across different times, places, and professional disciplines to provide a team approach to care for overall health.

The idea of a Medicare oral health benefit is attracting attention. Models for care that focus on screening, prevention, and early intervention have been developed. East Carolina University's Community Service Learning Centers are well-positioned to work with community partners to extend care to older adults in rural areas.

Access to oral health services for individuals within assisted living facilities had never been investigated on a statewide level. This commentary provides an overview of this issue and discusses a recent statewide surveillance survey that can help improve outcomes and access to dental services for residents of assisted living facilities.

John Timothy Wright, Alex White
Silver diamine fluoride is a topically-applied agent for managing dental caries. It stops caries lesion progression, turning them black and hard in a high percentage of cases. Populations including pediatric, geriatric, special health care needs, and those with limited access to oral health care can all benefit from silver diamine fluoride. This commentary addresses some of the many questions that have arisen with the availability of SDF and marked gaps in our knowledge.

To overcome persistent disparities in oral health access and status, it is vital we adopt a paradigm shift from addressing symptoms to also addressing root causes. This article delineates why an equity lens and a collaborative systems change approach are essential elements.

Pediatric oral health care in North Carolina has taken a unique path to its current form and will require similar innovation to counter headwinds to its continued success. This commentary describes that path and attempts to set a vision and strategy for the future that leverages Community Care of North Carolina's infrastructure and continues to promote the expansion of clinical guidelines for pediatric preventive oral health care for vulnerable populations.

The American Dental Association's Community Dental Health Coordinator program was designed to teach community health worker skills to dental auxiliaries. Case management, a valued skill utilized by medical providers, is largely unknown in the dental profession. When case management is incorporated into a dental professional's practice, prevention becomes amplified, leading to decreased costs and increased access.

A downward trend in dental caries in permanent teeth of children that began in the 1970s has leveled out at historic lows. Severe periodontal disease affects a small percentage of people, and tooth loss has plummeted so that complete tooth loss, once a common occurrence, now is almost non-existent in upper socioeconomic groups. But not all people have benefited equally from these positive trends. Dental problems continue to affect the disadvantaged in society at unacceptable rates, and their disease burden is likely to increase because of trends in social determinants of oral diseases...

BACKGROUND Death rates for white, middle-aged Americans are increasing after decades of steady decline. In this paper, mortality and health behavior trends are examined for midlife North Carolinians.METHODS Mortality rates were calculated for midlife whites from 2000 to 2013 for the state as a whole and in counties grouped by level of economic distress. Trend lines were used to estimate future death rates, and comparisons were made to rates for nonwhites. Current and past health risk behaviors were also analyzed...

BACKGROUND A 2007 national report identified North Carolina's Edgecombe County as having among the highest breast cancer incidence and mortality rates nationally, motivating the initiation of a task force and other local efforts to address the problem. The goal of this study is to examine county breast cancer characteristics before and after the report, including whether geographic variation may mask racial disparities in this majority African American community.METHOD With guidance from community partners, breast cancer cases from 2000 to 2012 in Edgecombe, Nash, and Orange Counties (N = 2,641) were obtained from the North Carolina Central Cancer Registry...

Students entering North Carolina public schools must have documentation of a health assessment and immunizations by the 30th day of class, or they are excluded from attending school until they submit documentation. A community collaborative was essential in decreasing the number of students excluded from school for noncompliant documentation in the Winston-Salem Forsyth County school district.
