Course Description:

Over 30% of the income for the general dental practice comes from treating patients over 60
years old, according to the ADA. Providing quality dental care to these patients presents unique
challenges due to the array of complex dental and medical conditions that become common as
we age. This course will address many of these issues including: treating caries in older patients;
concerns with polypharmacyxerostomia and how to address and simplify dental treatment in the
medically complex patient.

Course Objectives:

• The use and indications for Silver Diamine Fluoride
• How to use the Atraumatic Restorative Technique in addressing caries in older patients and patients with special needs
• The medical conditions and medications that affect the delivery of dental care
• Techniques that can be used to facilitate care in medically complex patients
