California Dental Association: A Dental Benefit in Medicare: Examining the Need in CA (copyright April 2019)

Justice in Aging’s Executive Director Kevin Prindiville and Director of Health Team Amber Christ co-authored this paper that discusses the oral health care need of California’s older adults. Lack of access to affordable and comprehensive dental coverage has resulted in California’s older adults having a high prevalence of oral disease. The addition of a comprehensive dental benefit to Medicare Part B would help lower the rates of oral disease.
