Overcoming the Effects of COVID-19:

Restoring Optimal Health
April 28, 2022
9:00 am – 11:30 am
  • Barbara Steinberg, D.D.S.

The pandemic wreaked havoc on our mental and physical health and is also quietly shaping how Americans will face aging in years to come. Our life expectancy as a result of COVID-19 has decreased by 1.4 years. This course for all members of the dental team will deal with the long-term consequences of COVID-19, both for those who had the virus as well as those who did not. Dr. Steinberg will in a most informative and upbeat manner discuss how to get our lives back together and get into the groove to achieve optimal physical, emotional, and social health in a post-COVID-19 environment.

Learning Objectives:
1) Become familiar with medical, mental, and physical issues that still plague those that suffered from COVID-19.
2) Learn how to effectively deal with issues that developed during the pandemic (i.e. mental issues, weight gain, sleep issues, etc.)
3) Identify those medical and mental issues that were neglected or not diagnosed during the pandemic and how to deal with them today.
