 Oral Health in the New Age of Aging
Perspectives on Epigenetics, Gerontology, and Chronic Disease

Friday, October 2, 2015

Join us for a unique opportunity to explore the essential issues of oral health for an aging population. With over 10,000 Americans turning 65 each day, in just a few years we will have nearly double the percentage of seniors living in our communities as we have today. The oral health of this sector of society will have a huge impact on the cost and treatment of many chronic and systemic diseases.

Breakfast and lunch included with registration.
