This course is designed to awaken the dental community to the possibility of human trafficking involving patients seeking care in a dental facility. Many clues may be evident and exhibited by a patient or even by the perpetrator who may be accompanying the victim. Unless the healthcare professional is aware of the signs, the opportunity to assist the victims may not be recognized. Communication with the victim is key in gaining trust and understanding the issues involved in each circumstance. Dental findings that may be present are assessed during the oral exam will be discussed. The protocol for reporting human trafficking will be presented. Many states are now requiring a course in this subject matter.
