Medicaid Mentorship Series

Learn and share with colleagues

DDSD staff hosts monthly video meetings for Medicaid dental providers and their staffs.

Each session will highlight a hot topic, Medicaid dental program updates, and an open discussion forum. Sessions are for all interested dental office staff - dentists, hygienists, assistants, insurance coordinators, and front desk associates.

Participants can earn 1 Practice Management CE from the SD Board of Dentistry for each session.

Medicaid Mentorship sessions are held via Zoom on the second Thursday of each month from 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. (CT) / 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. (MT).
