The intent of the Virtual Learning Community Program WebEx Series is to establish a quarterly forum through which IHS, Tribal, and Urban [I/T/U] dental program staff are able to increase awareness and knowledge about the Indian Health Service [IHS] Early Childhood Caries Collaborative[ECCC] and to reduce ECC by 25 in 0-5 year-old American Indian and Alaska Native [AI/AN] children by September 30, 2015. ECC is defined as the presence of one or more decayed, missing [due to decay], or filled teeth in a child under 71 months of age.
