All Canadians need access to preventive oral hygiene services. Yet for many Canadians, access to oral health care is largely tied to workplace benefits if they have dental coverage, or out-of-pocket spending if they have the financial means. For vulnerable seniors, dental hygiene services are often unaffordable, putting them at greater risk for poor oral and overall health.
As essential primary health care providers working with older adults and seniors every day, dental hygienists are doing their part through the delivery of oral health services, education, and health promotion. Join CDHA’s campaign for better oral health for seniors. Together, we can make a difference!
