Resources address oral health issues facing disabled, elderly and other special-needs patients

Malissa Savage, a community health worker who works with people in need of dental care, notes that variations in physical ability, mental capacity and behavior often call for flexibility and creativity by the individual and their caregivers.

Savage works for Allegany Health Right, a Cumberland, Maryland-based safety-net dental care provider for low-income, uninsured/underinsured adults. During a recent opportunity to observe Savage in action teaching, I learned about a number of resources will be useful to you in writing about the challenges and benefits of good home dental care for vulnerable adults.
