Celebrating Older American’s Month

Engage at Every Age! Keeping Your Mouth Healthy As You Age

This May, Oral Health America (OHA) joins the Administration on Aging in its observance of Older American’s Month and its theme ‘Engage at Every Age’, which emphasizes you are never too old (or young) to take part in activities that enrich your physical, emotional and social well-being.

For OHA, this means being active in maintaining your oral health. Whether it’s at home, at a provider’s office or advocating for dental coverage in Medicare, older adults are encouraged to ‘open their mouths’ and practice good oral health habits.

Download out our latest tip sheet (PDF 401 kB) on how older adults and caregivers can maintain a healthy mouth. Or, join the conversation on social media using #OAM18.
