Since dentures have been a treatment option in dentistry, there have been numerous problems for the dentist and the patient. “Troubleshooting Dentures” will help the general dentist to be able to diagnose and treat the patients and decrease the stress associated with making dentures.

“Troubleshooting Dentures” is based on 22 years of experience in denture treatment. It covers troublesome areas from the initial exam all the way through the post insertion appointments. And, once the dentures have been delivered, this course covers problems from the borders being over extended to the fit and function of the denture. This course also covers those elderly patients who have had the same dentures for 20 plus years along with a few other tips.

Description of Speaker:
After graduating from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in 1996, Dr. Barker began streamlining systems to optimize efficiency for his practice and his patients.
