Deadline to apply is August 1, 2019 for candidates to fill the seats of:
a member representing an organization of Colorado community health center.

The Colorado Dental Health Care Program for Low-Income Seniors (Senior Dental Program) has been very successful in promoting the health and welfare of Colorado’s low-income seniors by providing access to dental care to individuals age 60 and over who are not eligible for dental services under any other dental health care program, such as Health First Colorado or the Old Age Pension Health and Medical Care Program, and does not have dental insurance.

One of the reasons this program has been so successful is because of the work of the Senior Dental Advisory Committee (DAC). DAC not only serves as a forum where the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (the Department) and the stakeholder community can discuss the Senior Dental Program, it also makes recommendations to the Medical Services Board (MSB) regarding rules. The DAC will be asked to meet to receive updates, review, and comment on plans and activities relating to the ongoing administration of the Senior Dental Program. The Members are appointed to 3-year terms by the Department’s Executive Director.

The Department is seeking candidates to fill the seats of: a member representing an organization of Colorado community health centers, as defined in the federal “Public Health Service Act”, 42 U.S.C. sec. 254b AND a consumer advocate. If you are interested in filling one of these positions and would like the opportunity to participate on the DAC, please send a detailed email describing the following:

  • Which seat you are interested in applying for;
  • A brief description of your relevant experience;
  • Your role with your current organization and your relationship with low-income seniors; and
  • Why you would like to serve on the Committee.

In addition to the information requested above, feel free to include a current resume or any supplemental information you think would be helpful for our decision.

Please email your expression of interest and any supporting materials to my attention at Chandra.vital@state.co.us with the subject: Dental Advisory Committee Seat. Please respond by August 1, 2019.

If you have any questions or need any additional information, please contact me directly via email.
