Oral health for ageing populations
Oral health for an ageing population: Results of a survey on oral conditions in the elderly
Published: June 2017
FDI conducted a survey among its 140 regular members on oral conditions in the elderly and found that, from the 62 National Dental Associations (NDAs) who took part, only 39% collect data. The survey was carried out between January and December 2016 and asked NDAs whether and how they collect data on oral health among older adults, as well as the dental coverage model they have for them in their country.
