Geriatric Oral Health Website

Several years ago the Wisconsin Geriatric Education Center (WGEC) partnered with Marquette University's School of Dentistry to host a two day conference on geriatric oral health, which featured renowned experts from around the world.  The presentations from this conference were digitally captured and posted to a newly created website for the ongoing benefit of students, faculty, and professionals.  Each winter since then the WGEC has hosted a half-day continuing education program on Marquette University's campus, addressing different topics in the growing field of geriatric dentistry.  These annual presentations are also archived and available free-of-charge on the website.
