Keep the mouth of the elderly healthy
Maintaining the Oral Health of the Elderly is a new national Dutch project to improve the oral health of vulnerable elderly people who are dependent on care in healthcare institutions and nursing homes. Ivoren Kruis recruits dentists, dental hygienists and preventive dental assistants who are prepared to volunteer to give training/clinical courses to caregivers in healthcare institutions and nursing homes. The courses focus on the importance of oral health and an interactive presentation on how to brush teeth and dentures.
After each project meeting a survey is carried out amongst the dental volunteers in the healthcare institutions and nursing homes.
