June 21, 2023

This webinar took place on Wednesday, July 19, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. PT

Oral health affects overall health – and this is particularly true for older adults. Yet, access to oral health treatment is limited and complicated by factors such as lack of dental coverage, complicated rules, and lack of dental providers. This webinar, Oral Health for Older Adults in California, will assist advocates in connecting their clients with oral health treatment.

This webinar will provide a summary with advocacy tips on the following topics:

  • Why oral health matters
  • The state of oral health for older adults in California today
  • Health insurance coverage options for older adults including Medicare, Medi-Cal, and other forms of coverage
  • Unique barriers sub-populations of older adults encounter in accessing oral health, including dual eligibles and nursing facility residents
  • Treatment alternatives for individuals without dental coverage

Presenters:
Amber Christ, Managing Director, Health Advocacy
Tiffany Huyenh-Cho, Senior Staff Attorney
