This course is all about customizing the patient experience to the majority of those 55 million Americans currently 65 an older along with a predicted growth to 25% of the US population over the next forty years. The ADA in its demographic data have presented that this age group of patients will be a significant driving force for growth in our practices along with the strong need for advanced dental care. This course will focus on customized diagnostic protocols, periodontal and preventative strategies, along with new business approaches for this expanding population. The entire team is welcome to participate/attend and lastly, this is not a course on nursing home dentistry.
- Face it, this group is high risk for caries (they love their gummi bears) and long-term periodontal issues, and with such customizing hygiene and preventative protocols will be presented.
- Oxygentation because there is no way all those patients with ongoing bleeding 5's and more, can really manage periodontal issues with just a few yearly visits and a toothbrush!
- Today's initial exam and re-care exam, it's all about information and communication Why digital scanning is such a valuable technology that adds so much to these exams and is far more than just taking an impression. Understanding why CBCT imaging has become the mainstay for everyday diagnostics for evaluating these patients.
- Customizing your own in-office dental plan, why these patients love them! A step-by step approach will be presenting along with why many offices prefer to work with a turn-key cloud-based platform that goes from customizing your won plan to implementation and management.
