"Go Ahead: Stick your tongue out at me"
All about the tongue, including: anatomy; conditions; presentation; pathology; abnormalities; ties; case studies; screenings; link to halitosis; office debridement; home hygiene; link to systemic; eastern diagnostics; piercings; blocks; Shui and more. The objective is to learn about each of these subcategories, and to leave with practical solutions to many of the challenges presented.
"The Roar of Womanhood: How life's Phases Impact Oral Health"
From adolescence to adulthood to the childbearing years to peri-menopause to menopause and beyond, the journey of a woman's life and its impact on oral health is meaningful and significant. As clinicians, it is integral that we understand all possible impact and ramifications enabling us to better serve our female clients. As receivers of care, we now understand the perspective more fully, enabling us to apply this knowledge to expand our care provider roles. Course objectives will be to review and implement into practice how the phases of the woman's life cycles impact oral health, gain knowledge of contemporary theory with regard to "treatment" of physical, mental, and emotional challenges as they pertain to oral health and to integrate into practice, optimal oral assessment and treatment for the woman's journey through the ages.
