Course Information
According to the ADA, thirty percent of the income in the typical general practice today comes from seniors. This percentage is increasing rapidly as the number of these patients double to over 79 million over the next few years. Providing dental care for older patients is very rewarding but also challenging due to complex dental and medical conditions that become more common with age. In this entertaining and informative presentation, solutions to common everyday problems in older patients are clearly explained to give you increased confidence when treating seniors. Catch the Age Wave and prepare your practice for a successful present and future!
