Dementia - what does it mean for me?

10 March 2017

The Royal College of Surgeons • 35 - 43 Lincoln's Inn Fields • London • WC2A 3PE

Please join us for an FGDP(UK) seminar on dementia-friendly dental practice

With over a million people in the UK predicted to be living with dementia by 2025, the condition is affecting an increasing number of patients receiving primary dental care.

Dementia is complex, profoundly affecting memory and a patient’s ability to communicate, yet no two cases progress in the same manner. Practice teams increasingly need to understand the condition and respond to the needs of patients suffering from it.

FGDP(UK) is developing guidance on dementia-friendly dental practice, and this seminar will explore the implications of the disease for the management and care of patients, as well as wider considerations for dental practices.
