Demand on your CARE: Better teeth, better health


About This Course

This course is part of a MOOC series of the Jockey Club CADENZA e-tools for Elder Care funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. Oral health means more than good teeth. It is a significant factor affecting older people’s quality of life, overall health and wellbeing. Suboptimal oral health may have profound effects beyond the oral cavity.

People may not realize the links between physical health, disease, and risks associated with problems in the ageing mouth. Oral health touches every aspect of our lives but is often taken for granted. The complexity of ageing mouth means that formal or informal carers in elder care need to be familiar with the common conditions, and understand the importance in attending oral care. In this course, experts from the Hong Kong Dental Association are invited to provide their opinions on the essentials and common misconceptions in oral health care for older people.


There is no entry requirement.
