Addressing rural seniors' unmet needs for oral health care
from Health Affairs Blog
Residents in rural America face major difficulties in access, coverage and geography that limit their ability to obtain good oral health care. This is especially true for the rural elderly; whose oral health is often worse than that of the rest of the nation. While seniors nationwide would benefit from coverage improvements and better access to timely and appropriate care to reduce tooth decay, tooth loss and oral disease, these barriers take an especially serious toll on rural seniors.
