In an effort to raise awareness of the relationship between periodontal disease and diabetes — and the impact that periodontal treatment has on diabetes control —  New York University College of Dentistry is implementing a program focused on dental screenings for older adults. This program highlights just one aspect of oral health’s impact on overall health and is possible only through generous donations to fund a $25,000 DTA Foundation grant for the project.

Recently, we sat down with NYU College of Dentistry Associate Professor Julie Yip to learn more about their program and how others can implement a similar one.
