Free Webinar: Oral Health Coverage and Care for Older Adults

Event Description: 

The National Center on Law & Elder Rights (NCLER) will host a free webinar on June 6th titled “Oral Health Coverage and Care for Older Adults”. Many older adults face barriers in accessing needed dental treatment, exacerbating inequities in overall health among older adults living in poverty, older adults of color, and other marginalized populations. This webinar will provide an overview of oral health coverage options for older adults, including Medicare, Medicaid, and VA coverage, and an overview of other forms of dental coverage and care options, including stand-alone dental plans, clinics, and dental school options. Presenters will share practice tips for advocates on how to best connect older adults to oral health coverage and care.


  • Amber Christ, Managing Director - Health Advocacy, Justice in Aging. 
  • Murray Scheel, Senior Attorney, Justice in Aging.

This webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, June 6 at 2:00 p.m. ET.
