This annual symposium was envisioned five years ago by Dr. Egilius L.H. Spierings, MD, PhD one of the greatest world leaders in the headache field, author of more than 230 peer-reviewed publications and more than 10 books, and devoted clinician. He dedicated his entire career to the management of headache patients as well as clinical research for new medications for the treatment of headache by conducting high-profile clinical trials.
Dr. Donavon Khosrow Aroni and Dr. Alberto Malacarne, orofacial pain specialists and Dr. Spierings' mentees, have the goal of passing on the legacy of Dr. Spierings by following the core principles of his teaching: multidisciplinary collaboration, scientific method application, and ongoing learning from patient care.
According to the ADA, thirty percent of the income in the typical general practice today comes from seniors. This percentage is increasing rapidly as the number of these patients double to over 79 million over the next few years. Providing dental care for older patients is very rewarding but also challenging due to complex dental and medical conditions that become more common with age. In this entertaining and informative presentation, solutions to common everyday problems in older patients are clearly explained to give you increased confidence when treating seniors. Catch the Age Wave and prepare your practice for a successful present and future!
