Who makes a good candidate for the services of a Dental Wellness Liaison?

1. Those who see the value of optimal oral wellness as a support to overall health. Increasing evidence suggests overall health is directly related to oral health.
2. Those who have always valued their oral health and have previously put a considerable amount of time and money into maintenance of their teeth and gums. These individuals have retained some or all of their natural dentition or have extensive restorative such as implants, crowns, fixed and removable bridges etc.
3. Those who are no longer being closely followed by a dental professional. This may benefit a family that has secured a safe continuing care residence for their loved one.
4. Individuals that no longer have the cognitive or physical abilities to look after their oral health. Family may have concerns about the oral care that their loved one is receiving from home care services or in a long term care residence.
5. Individuals that are being taken care of by family that do not live in the same vicinity as their loved one. This creates peace of mind as the Dental Wellness Liaison fills an important role.
6. Individuals that are being looked after by family that could benefit from the help of a liaison with a dental training background. It can be overwhelming for family members to manage the variety of care giving activities while maintaining their own personal lives.
