Elderly Health Issues

Cognitive health is focused on a person’s ability to think, learn and remember. The most common cognitive health issue facing the elderly is dementia, the loss of those cognitive functions. Approximately 47.5 million people worldwide have dementia—a number that is predicted to nearly triple in size by 2050. (Source: vitalrecord.tamhsc.edu)

Amazing dental practice, I have been going here for 10 years and I only have good things to say. The dentists are extremely knowledgeable in their field and I always feel at ease going to the dentist or the hygienist. Would highly recommend Forster Court Dental Clinic.
