As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, Community Health Centers (CHCs) face critical dental assistant applicant shortages. At the height of the pandemic, many CHCs lost their dental assistants as dental services were shut down or significantly reduced. CHC’s need more dental assistants right now – and in the future to recover from this historical event. This workforce issue is spurring organizations to leverage proven strategies to advance and grow the pool of qualified talent, including pipeline and health professions training programs. We know that professionals who train in a CHC are more likely to stay and work in one. For this reason, CPCA is offering this webinar with the National Network of Oral Health Access (NNOHA) to discuss what it takes to “grow your own” dental assistant pipeline program. Also, CHC speakers will highlight their pipeline programs.
- Identify the issues and barriers that exist for the CHC dental assistant workforce.
- Discuss what steps and factors are involved in launching your own dental assistant pipeline program or partnership.
- Highlight existing CHC dental assistant pipeline programs to serve as examples of what is possible.
- Dr. Irene Hilton, NNOHA
- Dr. Ariana Terlet
- Dr. Sridevi Ponnala

*Last year, in recognition of the tremendous financial stress members were facing and to ensure that important and timely information could be accessed with no barriers, CPCA elected to waive training fees for the entire membership year (April 1,2020- March 31, 2021) and offer all training at no cost. As we continue to work in this pandemic environment to provide members the support they need, we must also plan for the future while supporting community health centers in improving the health status of their communities through advocacy, education, and services. Which is why the Board of Directors approved a budget in February that reflects a reinstatement of training fees effective for trainings taking place on or after April 1, 2021. If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
