CDHA releases oral care plan for older adults

By staff writers

June 17, 2022 -- The Canadian Dental Hygienists Association (CDHA) has released a policy paper urging the Canadian government to commit $2 billion over five years toward delivering an oral health program for older adults.

The paper calls on the government to support a thorough approach to oral health coverage for low-income older adults by setting minimum oral health requirements that will apply all across the country and supporting collaboration between provinces, territories, and the government to do this.

CDHA "hopes this paper will provide the federal and provincial governments with critical policy analysis and evidence-based recommendations for improving access to oral health care for seniors in Canada," it said.
