Low Cost Dental Care Options for YOUR Community-Handout
A major barrier to accessing dental care for older adults is a lack of insurance and/or finances. Dental care is so important to overall health and nutrition.
The mouth is the first route of nutrition. If an older adult has oral or dental health issues and cannot eat the nutritious foods their body needs, we have a problem.
We can help!
Often times in the every day hustle of life, both seniors and their caregivers may overlook the importance of good oral care. It is up to all of us to help seniors connect the dots to get dental care they need.
Navigating dental resources can be challenging. There is no one-size-fits-all handout, every state & community has different options available.
What is included?
This free resource is a how-to document. It provides instructions on how to create your handout. Website resources to investigate resources in your community. And a templated handout to fill-out and modify as needed.
This is fully editable Word document includes:
- Page 1 – instructions
- Page 2 – handout template
