Access for All Smiles

Everyone Deserves a Healthy Smile

McMillen Health developed Access for All Smiles, a dental health resource for caregivers of adults with disabilities. This resource will help professional and family caregivers learn:

  • The importance of dental health for the adults they support.
  • Best practices for daily mouth care.
  • Behavior support techniques to make daily mouth care a success.
  • How to encourage the desires and goals of the adults they support.

This self-guided resource is broken down into easy-to-understand topics, such as Daily Care Basics and Adaptations and Positions. Each topic includes:

  • Short, engaging videos.
  • Motivational interviewing tips to support adults with disabilities.
  • Short, written modules.
  • Interactive handouts that can be used as added support tools.

Take the Training

Access for All Smiles also includes one- and two-hour caregiver training videos. You can watch each below:
