Oral Care and Dysphagia Treatment:

Why SLP's care so much about a clean mouth.

Speech-Language Pathologists are far from oral care experts, but for the experts, we are a great sidekick. 

Oral care is one of our number one concerns during dysphagia treatment. 

Oral care really can mean life or death for our patients. 

The Presentation Highlights

  • How does oral care relate to pneumonia prevention?
  • What does poor oral care look like?
  • What can we do to improve the oral health of our patients?
