The Greatest Good for Aging Patients
Live CE Webcast, • March 19, 2021 • 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM ET

With age comes wisdom, and unfortunately, so does additional oral health complications!  Patients are living longer and in fact, adding almost 20 years to their longevity since the 1950’s.  With that, they are becoming more at high risk for caries, periodontal disease, and have decades of old dentistry in their mouths.  This course will be presented by three leading experts offering customizable treatments for this generation.
