Comprehensive Oral Healthcare Long-term Treatment Planning



This course explores the obligation dental care providers have to assist older adults in planning their future dental needs.  The importance of an accurate medical history will be discussed as well as the need to create an individual dental hygiene care plan based on the patient’s medical history findings and, in particular, the presence of any chronic disease.  Dental assessments, treatment plans and their implementation in a general practice setting will be examined as well as the caregiver’s role in helping to address identified needs.
