    The five nonprofit dental centers that comprise the Maine Oral Health Centers Alliance (MOHCA) leverage opportunities for peer learning through quarterly reviews of data dashboards. Each quarter, Ann Cadoret of Advancing Oral Health in the Safety Net, LLC, gathers quantitative metrics and qualitative information from each center to enable opportunities for peer sharing and learning. Ann analyzes the data and walks the group through the findings using the dashboards on a quarterly call. 
    During the 2022-2023 year, the quarterly data dashboarding calls focus on the following topics:
    • Building capacity for serving adults
    • Building capacity for serving children
    • Teledentistry
    • Overall wrap-up
    The presentations highlight effective practices and challenges from each center, comparative analysis for quality metrics, cost and other relevant data, and key takeaways.

    At this year's annual meeting, MOHCA is looking to secure Ann for more work that centers data in operations.
