Older Adults & Wellness:  The How-to’s of Oral Health Care

Daily oral care and brushing greatly affects health for older adults. Learn about better daily oral care for older adults, its impact on overall well-being, aids that can improve your oral care, and chronic illnesses and medications that worsen oral health.

Over the past 25 years, Letty has taught individuals how to provide daily oral care and recognize oral health problems that need dental referrals. The training allows caregivers to provide quality, up-to-date care to individuals.

Earlier in her career she served as Assistant Professor in the Department of Dental Hygiene at Wichita State University (WSU).
