Every day, thousands of Americans wake up on their first day of retirement with no dental health benefits. An estimated one in five low-income seniors lives with dental pain.
The Santa Fe Group and its partners are seeking to change that. At their recent salon, Expanding Oral Healthcare for America’s Seniors, leaders came together to develop initiatives to improve the understanding on aging and oral health.
Speaking with Compendium at the meeting, Beth Truett, CEO of Oral Health America, reflected on how extremely important this salon could be for people’s lives going forward.
