In 2009, the Mid Atlantic Province of the School of Sisters made a decision to provide optimal dental care for the Sisters of the Maria Healthcare Center at Villa Asumpta in Towson, Maryland.
Dr. Martin partnered with the residents and staff of MHCC to develop an ideal system that mimics the dental care the residents would receive from any dental practice. The materials and equipment used will be discussed as well as appointments and recall. Challenges in charting and record keeping in a nursing facility will be discussed. Dr. Martin will explain the treatments given to MHCC residences.
