PDI's case managers are out in the community.
Reaching Out to Our Community
Our case managers seek to improve long-term dental health in young children, and in children and adults with developmental disabilities. They provide extensive support to health care providers and families seeking care at the surgery center.
PDI case managers act as problem solvers for families, referring agencies, the community, and the surgery center. Wendy Lopez and Nazareli Parra work to assist families with gaining access to dental services under general anesthesia.
Their duties also include:
Providing interpretive services
Arranging transportation for clients to and from the center
Secure lodging if necessary
Determining eligibility ensuring that required forms are filled out and submitted
Ensuring that patients are enrolled in health insurance prior to treatment
