A predoctoral clinical geriatric dentistry rotation at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry



A predoctoral clinical geriatric dentistry rotation at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry



Journal of Dental Education 68(4): 454-459



Predoctoral dental students from University of the Pacific School of Dentistry provide initial and yearly dental evaluations for participants of On Lok Senior Health Services on site at On Lok centers. Student dentists also complete some dental procedures including denture fabrication, adjustments and repairs, hard and soft relines, scaling/root planing, polishing, and limited restorative treatments. A wide range of age-prevalent oral conditions such as candidiasis and xerostomia are identified and treated or managed. Students may also be called upon to present patient needs weekly to a member of the interdisciplinary team for discussion. Students periodically review instructions and devices for oral health care with the On Lok staff. The program is intended to be mutually beneficial to the participants of On Lok and Pacific student dentists. While the majority of comprehensive and emergency services are provided by On Lok staff dentists and contract specialists, the student dentist program has broadened the scope of the oral health program at On Lok and has been well integrated with the other day services. Meanwhile, Pacific students gain experience identifying and managing the complex social, economic, and health needs of frail elders in San Francisco.
