Based on the role that a healthy mouth plays in maintaining key func- tions such as ability to chew, nutrition, hence mobility and independence, the FDI–GC partnership will seek to estab- lish the fundamental role of oral health professionals in healthy longevity. It will further study opportunities for improved oral disease prevention and treatment of elderly patients and ac- tively promote awareness of research onoralhealthinanageingpopulations.
