January 20th, 2022 (Toronto, Ontario) - Recognizing the challenges brought on by the lack of oral health care in the elderly community, The Smile Room and BookJane are on a mission to make oral health care more accessible to retirement and long-term care facilities in Ontario.
With their direct-to-consumer model, The Smile Room delivers mobile health units straight into elderly care facilities to provide weekly oral care, personalized Teeth Cleaning as well as teledentistry examination and diagnosis services, delivered by registered dental professionals.
By delivering direct professional services, The Smile Room and BookJane help retirement and long-term care facilities overcome significant barriers to care, which can include lack of resident skills to maintain oral health, lack of staff training, lack of resources, or uncooperative seniors. Residents receive significantly improved oral health, which is vital to preventing decay and disease and can systematically impact their overall health if overlooked.
Meanwhile, staff can redirect their time and effort into providing care elsewhere, helping to maximize resident care outcomes while battling consistent staff shortages of 20-30% due to Coronavirus outbreaks.
The Smile Room powered by Book Jane provides a viable answer to the question: how can we improve the oral health of dependent elders?
By pairing Independent Oral Care Specialists with dependent elders, we can reduce the oral disease of clients. Elders no longer need to suffer unnecessarily from poor oral hygiene.
All Smile Room team members are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and undergo regular antigen testing to comply with provincial safety measures. If you’re interested to know more about how The Smile Room can bring these and other on-site Oral Health programs and smiles to your residents, contact them at 1-888-274-9569 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
