Smiles for Texoma
Evidence-Based Dental Program
approved TCOG’s AAA Dental Program as their first evidence-based Dental Program for the aging network in the state in May 2012. Other Area Agencies on Aging will be looking at taking on this program in their regions. This is what promises to be a widely beneficial program, not only for the community of Texoma, but others in the nation as well.
Affordable Professional Dental Care
TCOG AAA Care Coordination program is proactively involved in an innovative approach to provide a much needed affordable dental care program “Smiles For Texoma” (SFT) that assists the continually escalating dental needs of the low-income disabled, frail and elderly citizens of the Texoma area.
Through SFT, participating Texoma American Dental Society members agree to offer treatment at a reduction in normal rates, with the exception of lab fees, which are charged in full. Our goal is to help those seniors who would otherwise have no means of affording professional dental care.
The local community hosted a regional Senior Expo health fair in 2012 where 100% of the proceeds were awarded to TCOG’s AAA for much needed dental services in the Texoma area.offered free dental screening at the event.
2013 has brought over $190,000 in grant funding to SFT through which 100% of the funds are spent on direct services. One local dentist,, has served many seniors through SFT donating over $100,000 in time and services in Dental Welfare (in-kind services).
Attention: Local Dentists
Smiles for Texoma is actively seeking dentists to work with our program.
