Executive Director of the Aspen to Parachute Dental Health Alliance (APDHA), Cristina Gair, and Regional Oral Health Consultant, Kelly Keeffe, discuss the Smiles for Seniors program. The organization works with local dental hygienists to bring affordable preventative oral exams to senior centers in the Roaring Fork Valley. Gair and Keeffe also discuss the socioeconomics of tooth decay rates, and how the valley parallels the national trends.
