Intermountain Healthcare integrates dental care into preventative primary care model

Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Healthcare partnered with a local dental group to integrate dental care into its preventive primary care model, according to an Aug. 1 news release.

The health system has teamed up with Murray, Utah-based Burg Children's Dentistry to bring dental care to 14 locations across the state. Intermountain pediatricians and family medicine physicians will work closely with Burg's 18 dentists to coordinate care.

"Intermountain Healthcare's integrated primary care model already includes physical and mental care, and adding dental care will help us increase our focus on the whole health of each person we serve," said Dave Henriksen, operations officer at Intermountain Medical Group.

Burg Children's Dentistry was founded in 2002 by Jeff Burg, DDS. Today, Burg Children's Dentistry is one of the largest pediatric dental groups in Utah.
