FALL 2020 ONLINE CONFERENCE

CARIES MANAGEMENT FOR VULNERABLE INDIVIDUALS: FOCUS ON THE DISABLED & THE ELDERLY

The prevention and management of caries in vulnerable individuals is complicated by the need to identify the special accommodations necessary to allow comprehensive caries management.

The goals of this AAC online conference are to present the unique set of needs of people with impairments and how these needs can be addressed to advance practices for managing caries.

The topics will cover the evidence and necessary research related to caries management. These strategies must include collaborative efforts among different healthcare providers. Incorporating preventive oral health strategies taught to caregivers will play a critical role in maintaining oral health for a lifetime.

Oral health education of family, caregivers, and others, such as nursing home staff, is essential if caries are to be prevented or managed.
