Partnership with the UT School of Dentistry

The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Dentistry (UTSD) began an educational rotation at Holly Hall Retirement Community (HHRC) on Monday, August 24, 2015. This rotation will occur every Monday AM or PM. As people live longer and retain more natural teeth, their dental care becomes more complex, especially in relation to their overall health and management of acute and/or chronic diseases. Dentistry for older adults includes but is not limited to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of caries (dental decay) and periodontal (gum) disease, as well as oral mucosal diseases, head and neck pain, salivary dysfunction and impaired chewing, tasting and swallowing.

Working together, UTSD and HHRC hope to develop a continuum of care that involves:

  • Developing contemporary prevention, wellness and health promotion programs for patients, families, caregivers and staff
  • Providing oral health assessments
  • Referrals for dental care

This educational rotation supports community service learning for our dental and dental hygiene students. In addition, this partnership fosters ongoing and interprofessional relationships, as members of the facility’s healthcare team interact with UTSD faculty and students.

If you are interested in having your family member participate in this program (under supervision of UTSD dental faculty), you may ask the attending physician to request an assessment at no charge in HealthCare or inform your nurse in Assisted Living, and UTSD will be happy to provide this service. In addition, if you have any questions, you may email Dr. Margo Melchor at
