The BDA paper 'Oral healthcare for older people', produced in conjunction with an expert reference group, examines the demographics of the older persons population in 2020, their oral health characteristics and outlines a vision of the supply of oral health services for older people in 2020. The paper makes 21 recommendations to ensure that the oral health demands of older people two decades from now will be met.

The paper is available to download below, alongside a leaflet "caring for older people's teeth".
