Specialized Oral Focused Training
For Professional and Family Caregivers

The Georgia Board of Dentistry reviewed SOFT Smiles©
"...find your program to be excellent and a valuable asset
to the citizens of Georgia."

It's not often someone delivers more than expected. I was Mrs. Murphy relieved and gratified after a long search to find just the help my house-bound, elderly mother needed. Pam Cushenan gave very detailed instructions to me, the sitter and sitter supervisor for day-to-day thorough, gentle care of Mother's teeth, gums and denture. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Gratefully,
Edith Murphy

Some comments from SOFT Smiles Program Attendees:

The most important thing(s) I learned today:

  • Hand under hand
  • Dealing with Alzheimer's patients
  • Proper care techniques for special needs patients
  • New and more effective products to use
  • Staying calm and speak slowly to patients
  • Great tips on keeping special needs patients comfortable
  • How to handle patients in a positive way
  • New ways to open the mouth of special needs or resistant patients

Comments on the Program itself:

  • Great hands-on time!
  • Upbeat presentation!
  • Positive!

"Pam’s program Oral Care for the Aging Special Needs Patient is both practical and informative. Her presentation delivery is fantastic and goes a long way into taking the “fear” out of working with the elderly. I felt confidant that I could leave the presentation and go directly to a nursing home facility and work."
