Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
This will be a graded discussion board post and requires each group (15 points for initial post), and individual (10 points for 2 responses) to respond to at least two of the alternate groups with feedback, references REQUIRED for posted information and/or a clinical observation discussed in ALL posts.
The initial posting (worth 15 points) by the group should include all of the subheadings below. I recommend you work together for this section in a collaborative Google Doc BUT post ONLY ONCE for the entire group. So someone should be the “leader” of the group. If you use references please cite them:
periodontal risk (for specific age range)
tobacco use/side effects and oral manifestations
financial concerns (for specific age range)
typical work/family concerns (for specific age range)
restorative needs/requirements for replacement of faulty restorations
insurance accessibility (coverage through work or none)
systemic diseases/health challenges commonly found (for specific age range)
cosmetic concerns (discuss ALL: whitening, veneers, orthodontics, crowns and implants)
childcare issues (as applicable)
aging parents (“sandwich generation” https://www.seniorliving.org/caregiving/sandwich-generation/Links to an external site.)
The initial “group” posting is expected to be 500 words or more by November 17th by 11:59pm. The individual student responses are expected to be 250 words or more (substantial, new and accurate information added to original post – avoid repeating their information and only complimenting 🙂 which are NOT included in words counted and are due by Monday, November 20th at 11:59pm.
