A Dental Geriatrician plays a vital role in closing the gap in this neglected population as it relates to oral health – it is estimated that nearly 85% of this population needs dental care. “One cannot have good overall health without good oral health”.
As a member of your interdisciplinary team, Mouth Mirrors provides a Dental Geriatrician who is trained to meet the sensitive needs of this vulnerable population, provide comprehensive treatment and ensure your facility meets the federally mandated Minimum Data Set (MDS) Requirements to identify oral health problems.
