Dementia- Sensitive Dental Care


This month is dedicated to #oralhealth and overcoming #oraldisease; patients with #dementia and #alzheimersdisease deserve our attention too.
Dementia is becoming an increasingly common condition. While the disease complex affects the brain, there are complex effects on memory, behavior, and cognitive changes. Among these is the inability to perform routine personal health and hygiene care, leading to poor dental health complicated by unique difficulties in seeking and successfully undergoing dental treatment.
However, current dental training does not inform or sensitize dentists on this group of patients' unique needs.
This webinar is designed to educate dentists and specialists on the disease process and its medical management while sensitizing them to these patients' specific needs.
