PD is the second most common adult-onset neurodegenerative disease.  It is likely that dental providers will deliver care to patients with this diagnosis.  Individuals diagnosed with PD are at high risk for developing periodontal disease and dental caries.  They frequently experience oral side effects from the medications they are taking to manage disease symptoms.  They have many problems that can affect the provision of oral health care.  It is not uncommon for people diagnosed with PD to experience difficulty accessing oral health care.  Dental providers must be prepared to provide patient-centered oral health care to individuals with this diagnosis.  Delivering care to this population can be a rewarding experience for dental professionals when they have a sound understanding of disease variations, appointment management strategies, ways to interact in a non-discriminatory manner.
