Dental Care For Seniors Free Lecture April 5

The link between oral care and your health

Dental issues can be common in seniors, and since oral health directly impacts the health of the rest of the body, it is important to understand why a visit to the dentist can be just as crucial as a visit to a medical doctor. To learn the latest information, seniors are invited to attend Winthrop-University Hospital’s free lecture, “Dental Care for Seniors: The Link Between Oral Care & Your Health,” on Wednesday, April 5, at 1:15 p.m. The program will be held at the Mineola Community Center, 155 Washington Avenue in Mineola, one block south of Jericho Turnpike, between Mineola Blvd. and Willis Avenue.

Kathleen Agoglia, DDS, Director, Dental General Practice Residency at Winthrop, will explain proper dental care for seniors and why it is so important. Attendees will learn about the correlation between oral health and systemic health, including the connection between stroke and periodontal disease. A question and answer period will follow the lecture.

Free parking is available in the lot adjacent to the building; metered lots (quarters needed) are across the street. Seating is limited and reservations are required. To reserve a space, please call 516-663-3916.

Health Update for Seniors is a free community health education program presented by the Department of Public Affairs, Geriatric Health Services and the Winthrop Home Health Agency. For information on other programs at the hospital, call 866-WINTHROP.
