Dental Care and the Elderly

Occupational therapist Clarissa F. Smith wrote a very interesting article in the Advance for Occupational Therapists magazine- Poor Dental Care .
Occupational therapists can play a role in helping patients attain the oral hygiene that can save lives. It is so sad and weird that Medicare paid a Reiki practitioner (wihout my approval) to wave her hands around my mother when she was in the late stages of Alzheimers (and had her eyes closed), yet does not pay for dental care that saves lives and helps seniors to keep their teeth longer to chew and speak.
