Abstract

Objectives: To identify and synthesise the available evidence regarding the oralhealth needs of and the oral health promotion provided for older, cultural and linguistically diverse (CALD) migrants in developed countries.Method: Databases were searched using search terms to identify all relevant Englishlanguage research studies published between 2000 and January 2018.Results: Thirty-nine articles met the review criteria. Thirty-three papers reported onthe oral health needs of CALD older migrants and 6 on oral health programs provided for older migrants.Conclusions: Cultural and linguistically diverse older migrants have high oral healthneeds and poor oral status and face a variety of barriers in accessing oral healthcare in their host countries. Recommendations to improve their access to oral healthprograms include building transcultural dental training into the educational requirements of dental students and developing oral health promotion programs that includeculturally and linguistically customised information.
