S.A.L.T. to hear about I-Smile program

A healthy mouth is important at any age, but it can be especially important in your senior years. Tooth loss, cavities, dentures that don’t fit and other oral health conditions can make eating difficult for older Iowans.

The I-Smile Silver Program, sponsored by the Webster County Health Department, will be featured at the Thursday, Feb. 1 S.A.L.T meeting at the Farm Credit Services of America Building, just north of the Hamilton County Courthouse, in Webster City.

Gayla Moore, a Dental Hygienist, is the I-Smile Silver Coordinator presenting the program. She will discuss dealing with dry mouth, accessing dental services in our area, what payment options are available, how best to clean your mouth and product suggestions.

Treats, conversations and free Southfield Wellness Community blood pressure checks will be 9 to 9:30 a.m. Upcoming local events and announcements from law enforcement officials and other county organizations will also take place at 9:30 a.m., followed by the program.

All S.A.L.T. meetings are free of charge and open to the public. No reservations are required to attend. For additional information, contact Marilyn Middleton, Marketing Coordinator at Southfield Wellness Community, 832-3881.
