The Resource Library for the Integration of Oral Health and Medicine provides a centralized repository of relevant resources developed by a variety of professions in and around health care. This Library has been developed through the collaboration of the Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM), the Center for the Integration of Primary Care and Oral Health (CIPCOH), and the HSDM Initiative to Integrate Oral Health and Medicine.
