Older adults - particularly poor older adults - are among the Americans with the worst oral health. With this in mind, Oral Health America has teamed up with Columbia University and theNew York Academy of Sciences to host an Oct. 16 symposium aimed at building bridges between medicine and dentistry, with a special focus on the needs of older people. Our guests today are Beth Truett, President and CEO of Oral Health America, and Dr. David Albert, Course Director at the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine.
