ADA partnerships to award grants to programs focused on dental health for seniors
Updated: 2/13/2009 5:00:17 PM

ADA partnerships to award grants to programs focused on dental health for seniors Whether some senior citizens have dental insurance or not, the American Dental Association (ADA) will fund dental health programs to educate them on the benefits of good dental care.

Through a partnership with GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare and Henry Schein Dental, the Alliance of the ADA will award 12 grants of $1,000 each to programs employing community-based education to reach senior citizens about maintaining good dental health.

Eligible programs for the grants are those aimed at providing semi-dependent seniors with limited financial resources access to dental care in their communities.

The grants are a part of the Senior Smiles initiative, which is a program dedicated to raising awareness of good dental health among senior citizens through education and various dental care kits. Dentists and other dental professionals who conduct educational programs in their communities are eligible for the grants.

Seniors who do not adhere to a regular dental care routine may increase their risk of tooth decay and gum disease, which can lead to serious conditions such as heart disease if left untreated.
