Monday Roundtable Luncheon
Significant discussion was given to issues around oral health for older adults in the 2000 Surgeon General's Report on Oral Health. In the almost 20 years since that report, the population over 65 has increased by almost 60%, and the edentulous rates in most states have fallen by almost 50%. Gather round the table to discuss key items that should be included in the 2020 report related to older adults. What data points should we focus on? What will help seniors live with health and high quality of life?
