Program Description:

According to ADA statistics, 30% of the income in the typical general practice today comes from treating seniors. Providing quality dental care for these patients can be very rewarding but also very challenging due to an array of complex dental and medical conditions that become more common as we age. The entire dental team must be trained to meet the unique needs of seniors. Medication use, visual and hearing impairments, and a variety of medical conditions pose challenges. Caries is the primary cause of tooth loss as we age requiring the use of the latest adult preventive protocols. In this entertaining and informative presentation, Dr. Huffines will share solutions to common everyday problems that arise when treating older and medically complex adults. Catch the Age Wave and prepare your practice for a successful present and future!
