FREE WEBINAR: Domiciliary Care in Dentistry

Monday 24th of February at 8pm.

Presenter:

This Webinar is delivered by Dr Debbie Lewis. Dr Lewis is a specialist in special care dentistry in Dorset, where she developed and is still providing a special care dental service for adults with disabilities and additional needs. This includes a conscious sedation,  general anaesthetic  and  domiciliary care service. Debbie is  past president of the British Society of Gerodontology and the British Society of Disability and Oral Health and on the editorial board of the Journal of Disability and Oral Health. The ISDH is delighted to have Dr Lewis present on our behalf.

Learning at your leisure:

In this Webinar we will discuss dentistry for older people with a particular emphasis on when and how to bring dentistry out of the dental surgery and to the patient. This webinar is intended to be for the whole dental team. By the end of the session, attendees should be able to:

Explore issues of access to oral care for people confined to home

To consider the impact of frailty and chronic conditions on older people’s oral health

To consider the safety of domiciliary care

To look at equipment and materials for domiciliary dental care

After the webinar, it is expected that participants will be able to plan care for frail older patients and consider practical aspects of domicilliary care.

We hope you will join us.
