Caring for older patientsNews
Posted by: The Probe 5th April 2018
Charlotte Stilwell, Specialist Prosthodontist, will be presenting “Effective dental management of patients in later life” within the BDA Theatre at the British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show 2018.
“We have known for quite some time that life expectancy is increasing and that our patients keep their teeth for longer,” she says. “This is now becoming a daily reality in practice and it presents a number of challenges for dental care and management of these patients.
“Specific challenges for delivery of effective dental care include social, medical and dental factors that impact on the patient’s dental needs and wishes. Dental management needs to be tailored accordingly.
“I hope delegates will leave my session better able to examine the dental challenges presented by older patients. They should gain a better understanding of the strategies available to improve and maintain these patients’ oral health, ensuring a patient-centered and realistic approach.”
Dr Stilwell will be one of many world-class speakers in the BDA Theatre, which will also host Didier Dietschi, Koray Feran, Siobhan Barry, Claire Field, Richard Porter, Niek Opdam, Tidu Mankoo, Bhupinder Dawett and Arshad Ali.
