Delta Dental’s Senior Oral Health Report: Older American’s oral care regrets, barriers and impact

Prioritizing our oral health, no matter what life stage we are in, will improve our quality of life in a multitude of impactful ways. For older Americans (and young ones alike) who are looking to improve their oral health, Delta Dental recommends everyone follow the “2-1-2” rule – brush twice a day, floss at least once a day and see your dentist for check-ups two times a year.

Delta Dental is committed to providing older adults with consistent, quality access to oral health care, improving education and driving lasting policy changes to address systemic issues.
