By 2030, 1 in 5 Californians will be 65 years old or older and increasingly diverse in terms of race/ethnicity, financial resources, and living conditions. In contrast to the growing awareness in children’s oral health needs, the oral health needs of older adults have received relatively little attention. To serve this rapidly growing yet often neglected population, the Center for Oral Health, with support from the California Wellness Foundation (Cal Wellness) and the Archstone Foundation is developing the first documentation of the oral health care needs of older adults in California. The assessments are projected to be completed in September 2017, with a comprehensive report published in February, 2018. The report will present findings of the screenings, and programmatic and policy recommendations for future action driven towards older adults’ oral health in California.
