Geriatric Dentistry: Let’s Doctor Up This is a Core CE seminar

April 27, 2019
1:30 pm โ€“ 4:30 pm
  • Gregory Folse, D.D.S.

Clinical patient management of aging/special needs patients can be both challenging and a blessing. With the tsunami of aging patients and intricacies of their care, our dental teams must “doctor-up” to meet their needs. Clinical patient management, standards of care, when, where, and how to treat, when not to treat, treating difficult denture patients, new extraction techniques, and funding sources will be discussed. The “deadly five” conditions that stop or delay care will be presented as well as answers to many dental, medical, pharmacological, and psychological concerns. By attending, your ability to safely and effectively treat this population in the general dental office will be improved and your opportunities to truly “doctor” these wonderful patients will be enhanced.

Learning Objectives:
1) The “deadly five” conditions to stop or delay provision of care for older patients.
2) When, where and how to treat geriatric patients and/or special needs adults.
3) Potentially adverse dental, medical, pharmacological, and psychological concerns and how to handle them.
4) Clinical tips, materials, and strategies that enhance the entire dental teams’ ability to treat this population.
