Project/Thesis Title

Improving the Oral Health of Community Dwelling Elders in Rural Tasmania


As the old age sets in elders become more functionally dependent and eventually shift from independent living to more supported care. Due to increased retention of teeth and oral diseases into older age can create a considerable burden of disease. Poor oral health can lead to pain, social isolation and malnutrition and is associated with chronic conditions such as frailty and diabetes adversely impacting overall well being of an individual. This project aims at the determinants of oral related quality of life in community dwelling older adults in rural Tasmania and eventually design a intervention strategy to improve their oral health of prior to their entry to residential aged care facilities.
