About the Course
Oral health encompasses the craniofacial complex and includes the teeth, periodontium, mucosa, gingiva, oral pharynx, temporomandibular joints, and muscles used for mastication. Although men and women face many common oral health issues, it is no longer acceptable to consider oral health to be gender neutral. Indeed, women differ from men in their oral health needs and concerns. This basic-level course explores the variables affecting women’s oral health and discusses the issues and concerns that dental professionals face in providing care to females across their life span.

Course Objectives
  1. Identify oral health issues in the developing woman and young adult female patient.
  2. Describe reproduction-related oral health issues.
  3. Explain clinical practice guidelines on oral health care for women of childbearing age.
  4. Discuss dental care and treatment during pregnancy.
  5. Identify concerns of middle-aged and older female dental patients.
