Elders residing in institutional settings have unique oral care needs. Often facing multiple chronic conditions, limited access to dental care, and self-care deficits, these seniors are especially vulnerable to suboptimal oral hygiene and oral/dental complications.

Emphasis will be placed on the palliative oral care issues of those with multiple medical co-morbidities or serious advanced illness.
