Course Description:

According to the US Census Bureau, approximately 1 out of 5 Americans have a disability. Providing oral health care to individuals with disabilities may require modifications to the types of treatment rendered and the way it is delivered. This course is targeted toward dental health providers looking to increase their ability to deliver dental care to individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities (ID/DD), acquired disabilities, and other special healthcare needs.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe common intellectual and developmental disabilities that individuals may present with in the dental office
  2. Discuss common legal and ethical questions related to treating individuals with special healthcare needs
  3. Identify strategies and modifications to dental treatment options and dental treatment delivery for individuals with special needs
