Senior Smiles is a project that has developed an online preventive oral health program for older adults living in Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACF) throughout Australia. The website encompasses a wide variety of resources for utilization by dental hygienists and qualified oral health therapists. The website has been created so that it can easily be modified for other special needs groups in the future.
The Alliance for Oral Health Across Borders Global Awards Program has funded creation of the Senior Smiles website in 2020. (www.seniorsmiles.org.au)
