Oral Health America Releases State-by-State Report

Dana Halvorson

Oral Health America (OHA) recently released its biennial report entitled, A State of Decay: Are Older Americans Coming of Age without Oral Healthcare? According to the Toothwisdom.org website, “A State of Decay Vol. III by OHA is a state-by-state report of the oral health of the country's 65+ population and the success or failure of states to address those needs. The 2016 State of Decay is the 3rd in a series of reports from OHA surveying the state of oral health for older Americans. It is one of five strategies for OHA’s Wisdom Tooth Project®, a program designed to meet the oral health challenges of a burgeoning population of community dwelling older adults, their family caregivers and the health professionals who work to help them age healthily and independently.” The full report can be found here
