Register here for a free American Society on Aging webinar featuring Dr. Karen Becerra of the Gary and Mary West Senior Dental Center on how community resources can help address oral and overall health needs for low-income older adults.

The Gary and Mary West Senior Dental Center is a nonprofit, integrated community dental center dedicated to serving low-income older adults in downtown San Diego. The Senior Dental Center links high-quality and affordable oral healthcare with a suite of nutrition, case management and wellness services offered through Serving Seniors’ Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center, creating a one-of-a-kind, integrated community-based system of care for older adults.
