Last September, GlaxoSmithKline and the ADA joined hands to launch OralLongevity, an initiative designed to increase awareness about the need to enhance and preserve the oral health of older Americans.
The ADA has provided a downloadable brochure and DVD from it’s website that provides valuable information for the patient, caregiver and provider.
Other resources include the September 2007 edition of the Journal of the American Dental Association, which contains two special features—a 56-page supplement, “Oral Health and an Aging Population,” and the new OralLongevity Brochure and DVD education program. Access to this issue is available in print at Bibby library or online by selecting the title from our list of electronic journals.
