Mercy LIFE (Living Independently for Elders), located at 4508 Chestnut street, provides interdisciplinary medical, dental, behavioral and pharmacy services for elders living in West Philadelphia. Modeled after the national program of all-inclusive care for the elderly, Penn Dental Medicine faculty and students provide oral health education, and diagnostic, preventive, restorative, prosthodontic and surgical dental care as part of the interdisciplinary care team at Mercy LIFE.
