The challenge of treating the elderly

Dr. Gert Stel

In the upcoming decades the general population will grow older and become more medically compromised.

Also in general there is a shift from cure to care and awareness on quality of life aspects. For the dental professional this can become a challenge, since individual risk assessment is not always easy and treatment options may vary. In this webinar the viewer will learn how the focus on oral care for the elderly can been organised and how a prevention orientated and risk based care concept can contribute to a more healthy oral environment in the elderly patient.
