Alzheimer’s and Dentistry – 4 Hours

$40.00

Description

Alzheimer’s disease is a rapidly growing problem, affecting over 20% of our population and continuing to increase. Providing healthcare and dental care for Alzheimer’s patients requires innovative, interdisciplinary, and collaborative approaches. Understanding the aging process and conditions related to aging, such as Alzheimer’s, and communicating effectively with caregivers can greatly enhance patient care, reduce dental issues, and improve overall dental experiences. There is a correlation between chronic dental inflammation and Alzheimer’s, but new approaches can help minimize their impact.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: 

  • Define the geriatric patient
  • Discuss common causes of dementia
  • List ways to communicate effectively with geriatric patients
  • Recognize geriatric patient needs
  • Identify practical applications for geriatric dental care
