    Every Smile Counts

    Wednesday, June 22nd

    9:00 a.m. 2:00 p.m.
    No appointment needed.

    We welcome your participation in the Every Smile Counts Survey, an oral health screening of older adults, to help promote and advocate for improved access to affordable dental care. Oral health is a vital component to overall health and wellbeing across the lifespan. Poor oral health is associated with diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and lung disease.
    A licensed dental hygienist will visually inspect your mouth. It only takes about 5 minutes. We will also ask you to complete a short questionnaire. We follow infection control procedures more stringent than required by CDC. As a way of appreciating your participation, you will receive a toothbrush, toothpaste and other oral health products.
    The past survey in 2012 resulted in: the expansion of dental hygienists being able to provide services in senior centers, public housing, and nursing homes; required education for nursing home staff on oral health care; and beginning discussions on getting dental coverage under Medicare.
    This survey is sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Public Health through a CDC grant.
