Through collaboration with Dientes Community Dental Care and the Delta Dental Community Care Foundation, Anita and the Salud Dental team are transforming the landscape of dental care for seniors.
By now, you’ve likely heard about how, through this key funding and partnership, Salud will be positioned to hire additional dental providers to serve more patients, increase outreach and education for oral health, and make dental care more accessible to seniors, especially those with mobility and transportation challenges. The ultimate goal is to create a replicable model that other communities can adopt to bring about positive change in oral health care access for seniors.
