Dental problems are among the most common issues for seniors across the board. Many factors contribute to these problems, including the expense of treatment, a lack of insurance coverage, lack of dental providers and more. For individuals within the Denver Metro Area, the Colorado Gerontological Society may be able to provide a Dental Program grant to help with the costs of dental work. If you are not eligible for reasons of age or county of residence, we have identified the following resources which may also be able to assist you with dental problems.
