More and more older New Zealanders are retaining their natural teeth, and retaining more teeth is creating greater demand for oral health services
and dental care than ever before.

Are you concerned about the oral health situation of older New Zealanders?

Would you like to learn more about what lies ahead for our older people’s oral health and the health professionals who care for them?

Would you welcome the opportunity to plan action and direction with leading experts from the community and academia from NZ and Australia?

JOIN US FOR THIS STUDY DAY AND WORKSHOP TO:

  • Update and increase knowledge about older New Zealanders and their oral health status, the relationship between oral health and general
    health in older people, and the need for oral health care and service delivery for older New Zealanders;
  • Understand the challenges facing the oral health and aged care sectors in providing oral health care and services for older New Zealanders, now and in the future;
  • Build on current connections with oral health colleagues, and develop networks with people and organisations involved in the care of older
    New Zealanders;
  • Plan the future direction of older people’s oral health care and service delivery in New Zealand.
