Access Information
Brief Description Special Care Dentistry (SCD) is a branch of dentistry concerned with the oral health of people with a variety of medical conditions or limitations that require more than routine delivery of care. Special Care Patients are in particular more vulnerable to oral health problems than those without, being reported to have higher plaque scores and caries prevalence, as well as poor periodontal health. Maintaining good oral hygiene and access to dental care amongst this cohort was, and still is, often non-existent, especially when compared to the general population. Problems such as lack of oral health awareness amongst caregivers and/or patients, limitation in the ability to perform oral hygiene practices, agility, and poor motor coordination, diet problems, medications’ side effects, limited access to dental care, or needing assistance in performing oral hygiene regime are evident to be responsible for the poor oral health in people with disability. This meeting is trying to discuss the recent technologies, achievements, and challenges among the special care dentistry pacticioners.
