NASUAD I&R Center: I&R/A Dental Needs Survey

Source: National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities

Dear Aging and Disability I&R Professionals,

NASUAD is currently administering a brief survey to learn more about the access of older adults and persons with disabilities to oral health services.  This survey is a follow-up to the NASUAD/NCIL 2015 I&R/A National Survey, which found that dental services were one of the most frequent unmet service requests for individuals in the community.  We’re seeking more information about the gaps, barriers, and challenges that older adults and people with disabilities face when they seek oral health services.  We are also interested in successes, promising practices, and other information regarding dental supports for individuals in these population groups.  We are requesting a response by July 21st.
