The Dental Quality Alliance (DQA) is sponsoring a Dec. 5 webinar from noon to 1 p.m. CST that will identify, recognize and emphasize the importance of quality measurement and improvement as it relates to dental practice.

"The ADA is always trying to help members succeed, and this webinar is an example of that effort," said Dr. Christopher Bulnes, chair of the ADA Council on Dental Benefit Programs and a presenter of the webinar. "This webinar will analyze the definition of quality from various perspectives, feature practical ways in how dental practices can measure quality and thus improve quality as it applies to population health. It will also help dentists understand the impact of quality measures on practitioners, payers and patients in the evolving health care landscape so that all stakeholders in health care can benefit from quality measurement and improvement."

Dr. Marie Schweinebraten, chair of the Dental Quality Alliance education committee, is also a co-presenter of the webinar.

The DQA was established by the ADA to develop performance measures for oral health care. The DQA is an organization of major stakeholders in oral health care delivery that use a collaborative approach to develop oral health care measures. The mission of the DQA is to advance performance measurement as a means to improve oral health, patient care and safety through a consensus-building process.
