Scenes from the Santa Fe Group Salon: Kathleen O’Loughlin, ADA Executive Director, Highlights Need for Collaboration

Posted on October 5, 2016

Every day, thousands of Americans wake up on their first day of retirement with no dental health benefits.

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. 

The explosive growth of people over 65 in this country is prompting an urgent discussion on providing access to dental care and raising a very important question: Should Medicare provide a dental benefit?

In this video, Kathleen T. O’Loughlin, Executive Director of the American Dental Association, highlights some of the key points in this ongoing discussion.
