Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a chronic, progressive, degenerative disorder of the central nervous system resulting from the decreased availability of the neurotransmitter dopamine, a chemical that transmits messages to the cerebrum to control movement and coordination. The course will provide an overview of the disease, describe drug and non-drug treatments commonly used to treat PD, and present ways for dental professionals to modify and adapt the provision of oral health care to meet the needs of patients who have PD.
