According to the survey, conducted by Harris Interactive, over half of those who do not visit the dentist on a regular basis cite financial reasons or a lack of dental insurance. We cannot continue to let economics determine the oral health of our aging population. The time has come to educate Americans about the importance of oral health and encourage lawmakers to support oral health initiatives.

"The oral health of the nation's older adults has been ignored for too long, and we are proud to support OHA's quest to bring attention to this important issue through the Fall for Smiles campaign," said R. Ivan Lugo, DMD, MBA, Oral Care Professional and Scientific Relations, Regional Manager for North America and Puerto Rico, Procter & Gamble. "Through its relationships with dental associations and manufacturers across the country and the great work of Fall for Smiles, OHA is truly living their mission of connecting communities with resources."

The Fall for Smiles webpage, http://www.oralhealthamerica.org/fallforsmiles, features many resources and materials Americans of all ages and economic backgrounds can use to participate in the campaign and help spread the message of the importance of oral health. These materials include oral health tip sheets for kids and older adults, template press releases, web buttons, suggested social media language, and activities for families.

Fall for Smiles is generously sponsored by: 3M ESPE, the American Association of Dental Office Mangers, Atlantic Precious Metal Refining, Crest + OralB, DentaQuest, Denticator, the Hispanic Dental Association, Hu-Friedy, Midmark, the National D
