Virginia Long-Term Care Facilities

unloading smiles to you equipmentAdministrators, CEOs and staff of Long-Term Care facilities will benefit by providing on-site, in-house dental services for elderly residents. Smiles To You provides oral hygiene services delivered on-site on a monthly basis, at no additional cost to the facility and for most residents. By enrolling in the Oral Hygiene Care Program, rates of disease and infection will decrease within the Long-Term Care resident population. This contributes to an improved QIS score and keeps facilities compliant with federal and state regulations. Smiles To You is committed to providing oral hygiene care to reduce the cost, risk and liability, and disease rates that Long-Term Care facilities often struggle with.

Federal Regulation 483.55 states that, “a facility must provide or obtain from an outside resource… routine and emergency dental services to meet the needs of each resident.” The intent of this regulation is to hold long-term care facilities responsible for assisting residents in obtaining dental services including routine cleanings, oral cancer screenings, and advanced care, if needed. Smiles To You Clinical Programs are your answer to the Quality Indicator Survey and federal mandates concerning dental and oral hygiene care in every Virginia Long-Term Care facility.
