Synopsis:

i) An Overview of Dental Treatment Considerations for Geriatric & Dependent Adults

 The older population is increasing. How can we better manage the oral health of this group of people? This talk will be an overview of the treatment planning considerations for a geriatric patient. This would include: (1) assessing a geriatric patient; (2) identifying risk factors that may complicate treatment; and (3) optimising the patient’s quality of life.

 Speaker: Dr Joanna Ngo, Registrar, Dental Surgery, KTPH

 ii) Oral Health Implications of Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease

In light of the ageing population in Singapore, it is not uncommon to manage patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and/ or Parkinson’s Disease in the dental setting. This lecture will cover these diseases as medical problems and discuss the implications on the provision of oral healthcare, as well as the potential side effects of their medications which may impact upon dental treatment.

Speaker: Dr Melissa Guay, Dental Surgeon in-charge, Woodlands Polyclinic DentalCare, NHGP
