ECHO Series | Geriatric Oral Health & The 4Ms framework “Mentation”

Live Interactive Webinar

Friday, February 5, 2021 | 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM CST



This course series will introduce the Age-Friendly Health System as a guide to dental providers for a team approach treatment, in an effort to enhance clinical outcomes of older adults. On February 5, 2021 we will continue discussing the third pillar of the 4Ms framework, “Mentation.” Understanding dementia in the elderly may help the providers align care with each older adult's specific health outcome goals and care preferences including, but not limited to, end-of-life care and across settings of care. 



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

  • Understand the impact of mentation in oral health of older adults
  • Acknowledge and understand the most common dementia, related disease in older adults
  • Understand dementia and cognitive decline in older adults.
