  "Maintaining good oral health habits now is especially important because unhealthy bacteria in the mouth not only can harm your teeth and gums but may be associated with serious medical conditions."  

The Lifelong Smiles Coalition is a group of partners dedicated to working together to assure optimal oral health for aging Iowans. There is no membership fee to join. 

There are two types of coalition membership.
