Senior citizens in select areas of Osceola County now have even more reasons to smile, thanks to the Senior Smiles program—a county initiative launched in 2023 by District 2 Commissioner Viviana Janer. Senior Smiles provides affordable and accessible denture services through a collaboration between the Osceola County Commission and Osceola Community Health Services, and is now available to qualifying seniors in additional areas of the county.

Senior Smiles Osceola offers comprehensive services, including full dentures, partials, X-rays, and extractions, all carried out on a mobile dental trailer equipped with two exam rooms. This allows the Osceola Community Health Services team to deliver quality dental care directly to seniors ages 55 and older.

“At Hope Partnership they do a great job in working with our homeless and precariously housed individuals, which probably need this more than anyone else. Today we’re going to be able to help eight clients of theirs, so we’re very excited to be able to create more smiles in Osceola County,” District 2 County Commissioner Cheryl Grieb shared at the Senior Smiles event at Hope Partnership in Downtown Kissimmee.

Funding for the program has now been expanded through the American Rescue Plan Act to reach even more areas within the county. District 4 Commissioner Cheryl Grieb recently distributed vouchers for free dentures to Hope Partnership in Downtown Kissimmee that will make it possible for 45 qualified seniors to receive no-cost dentures and denture services.

District 3 Commissioner Brandon Arrington will also bring this senior dental service to his district when he hosts a special event on Tuesday, May 14  at the Palos Verde community located at 2050 Bellalago Dr. in Kissimmee. The Senior Smiles mobile dental trailer will pull into the event at 9 a.m.,.

Senior Smiles ensures affordable dental care for all qualified seniors in Osceola County. Both insured and uninsured individuals are accommodated, with costs based on income and insurance status. Uninsured participants will have their fees determined by income, while those with insurance will follow a fixed cost schedule set by Osceola Community Health Services. District 2 residents can receive additional financial assistance for this life-changing service.
