Dental Health Pilot Program

Help improve the health of your residents by participating in a dental health pilot program!

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Office of Dental Health (ODH) has developed a pilot program to deliver on-site interventional care to long-term care residents to reduce adverse health risks to residents in a cost-effective manner. Oral infections in older adults significantly increase the risk of pneumonia, acute diabetic problems, cardiovascular events and acute rheumatic arthritis episodes. This highlights the need for good oral health care for long-term care facilities (LTCF) residents.
