Oral Health and Diabetes in Patients Experiencing Homelessness

Learn about the connections between periodontal disease, diabetes, and homelessness in this new fact sheet, developed in partnership with the National Network for Oral Health Access. Diabetes and periodontal disease are chronic conditions that impact all groups, regardless of income or housing status. However, these diseases are especially prevalent among people experiencing homelessness due to barriers in accessing health care services and prevention resources like dental hygiene products or nutritious food.

Find out more about the relationships between diabetes and oral health and what these connections mean for people without homes in our new resource and a corresponding webinar on the topic.

Read the fact sheet.
