Myths about older people learning new dental health information

Myth breaker: Old dogs can learn new tricks

Contrary to the old adage: - You can teach old dogs new tricks!
As we live longer, we also want and need to stay healther longer. Our teeth need to last longer. Dr Rodrigo from the Oral Health Cooperative Research Centre at the University of Melbourne debunked myths about learning and older people in a recently article in the Australian Dental Journal 2015.

Dr Rodrigo pointed out that providing clinical treatment to older patients was only part of the health story. For better health people need to effectively self- manage disease prevention.
