Improving Geriatric Oral Health

As a result of advances in public health and medical field, the life expectancy of the humans has increased in India. Developing countries provide residence to two-thirds of the world's elderly population. Therefore, the policy makers should consider this vast population, who will be in demand of health services including oral health as the age progresses.

Government of India has to ensure that every elderly individual receives quality oral health care and that too at an affordable cost. IDA’s community centers cater to these needs of the geriatric population. We aim to provide oral rehabilitation to the elderly, thereby restoring their functional lifestyle.
