Discussed in this course is the changing demographics in population as the older population is exploding in the United States, Europe and Asia. As owners of a business, we need to be aware of the patient population that requires our services. The older population has special needs due to age related changes, medical issues, effects of medication, difficulty doing home care and access to care. This course shows how to make a successful practice focusing on the older patient and discusses why it is beneficial for dentists to have an interest in treating the older patient. In addition it shows how to perform esthetic dentistry on the older patient who may not be able to do home care and has someone else responsible for taking them to the dental office.
