I-Smile Silver

I-Smile_Silver_logo_larger.jpg

As a result of the widespread success of the state I-Smile program for children, the Iowa Department of Public Health has received funding from the Delta Dental of Iowa Foundation for the I-Smile Silver pilot project in Lee and Van Buren County.  I-Smile Silver is designed to improve access to oral health care for Iowans ages 60 and older, particularly those in nursing facilities, those who receive home health visits, and who receive community based services.  I-Smile Silver is supported by the Lifelong Smiles Coalition and is a two-year pilot project.  The I-Smile Silver program will help us to understand barriers to accessing dental care, and also to learn about ways to address those barriers.  The project will also work to prevent dental disease by providing oral health training to those that work closely with this age group.  Results of the pilot project will determine the ability to replicate I-Smile Silver statewide.
