Support a Senior for a Year of Oral Healthcare!
Dental disease remains one of the most serious and widespread chronic health problems in America, especially for low-income seniors who often lack access to care.
The top three barriers to care are high cost, transportation, and lack of providers accepting Denti-Cal (CA state Medicaid)
Your donation to the Gary and Mary West Senior Dental Center will provide services to low-income seniors and put a dent in the staggering numbers:
• 41% of American seniors choose between rent and nutrition each day. Dental care is rarely prioritized.
• 70% of the 10,000 Americans turning 65 every day, have no dental insurance.
• 77% have fair or poor oral health.
• 45% are missing teeth with no dentures/partials/implants.
You can make a difference with just $10 per month or a one-time donation of $120 to provide a yearly cleaning for a low-income senior in need! Double that donation and you will ensure a senior receives the recommended two cleanings per year!
