alifornia Healthcare Foundation to bring this project to the community."

The four-year pilot project will expand and improve access to dental services for people by giving participating dentists the technological capability to examine patients remotely with help from dental hygienists and dental assistants in underserved communities. After the remote examinations, dental hygienists and dental assistants will perform preventive and temporizing restorative treatment for the patient.

"This pilot project helps dentists improve the oral health of all Californians," said Lindsey Robinson, DDS, chair of the CDA Foundation board of directors. "Thanks to the generous grant from Verizon, we will be able to bring dentistry into underserved communities."

Project Director Dr. Paul Glassman, professor of dental practice at the University of the Pacific's Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, said: "This new care delivery model provides a much-needed community-based 'virtual dental home' for the state's most vulnerable people, who will access dental services in their own communities as well as remove some of the barriers to receiving care in a traditional dental office setting."

The pilot project will operate at 15 community locations across California in Los Angeles, the Bay Area, the Central Valley and northeastern California.

Planning and start-up activities during the first year will include the development of necessary protocols, data collection and evaluation systems, and a field test at six community locations. Nine more community locations will be added during the second year. The viability of the project will be evaluated at the end of the fourth year.
