May 13th, 2014

On May 23, Dr. Gordon Christensen, founder and director of Practical Clinical Courses and CEO of Clinicians Report Foundation, will provide the keynote lecture for the 2014 Linda C. Niessen Geriatric Dentistry Symposium at Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry.

Christensen, a practicing prosthodontist in Provo, Utah, and international continuing education speaker, will present “Real Challenges, Practical Solutions,” covering topics such as:

  • practice management for geriatric patients;
  • preventing dental caries in geriatric patients;
  • preventing and treating periodontal disease in geriatric patients;
  • dry mouth; and
  • identifying and treating snoring and sleep apnea.

Dentists, dental hygienists, faculty, residents, students, dental assistants and lab technicians may sign up for the course, which provides seven hours of continuing education credit.

The annual symposium, geared toward helping dentists address the needs of geriatric patients, is named in honor of Dr. Linda Niessen, a longtime clinical professor at TAMBCD and now dean of Nova Southeastern University College of Dental Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
