Thank you for offering this as a resource. We will certainly keep this in mind if we need additional housing options or if this program expands in the future.

Senior Dental Day

12/29/2014 3:15pm

On Friday December 12, 2014, AAAWM held the fourth annual Senior Dental Day. This year we served 42 older adults through referrals from AAAWM, Senior Neighbors, UMCH-United Methodist Community House, Salvation Army, and HHS Health Options.

The event was held in the newly remodeled Grand Rapids Community College Dental Clinic.

This event would not have been possible without the 100 students, local dentist, hygienists, teachers and dental assistants who volunteered their time to provide much needed dental care to these older adults. Funding was also made possible by a generous grant from the Delta Dental Foundation. Visit our Facebook page to see photos from the event.
