Course Description


Systemic diseases are more common in older adults than in younger people, even among those who are functionally independent. To provide optimal oral health care, clinicians must understand the special needs among their geriatric patients, including the oral manifestations of aging, frequently encountered systemic diseases, and the modifications of treatment.

This course is valuable for the entire dental team.


After completion of this course, the participant will be able to:

  • review the top ten most common systemic diseases among functionally independent older adults.
  • review the treatment modifications for oral health care among patients suffering from these conditions.
  • delineate specific necessary actions before, during and after dental treatment
