This excellent new work confronts two important oral health policy concerns in the United States: the disparities in the oral disease burden and the inability of certain segments of the population to access oral health care. The book examines in depth this crucial yet frequently overlooked indicator of seniors' quality of life. It provides an invaluable set of recommendations to the clinical, research, and administrative communities that will serve the elderly population.
