The Senior Dental Center was recently selected to receive the first-ever grant from the Johnson & Johnson Western Region Retiree Association (JJWRRA) in support of our efforts to provide accessible, high-quality oral healthcare to vulnerable seniors. JJWRRA provides grants that support Elder Health, which focuses on maintaining a healthy body and mind, independence, and dignity for our aging communities.

This grant will allow us to use technology to help older adults better understand the status of their oral health, treatment, and home care through the purchase of Apple iPads and the American Dental Association’s Chairside Instructor App. We want to thank JJWRRA for their support of the Senior Dental Center as we bring whole-person oral healthcare to older adults in north county San Diego.
