The Dementia Friendly
As humans are living longer than ever before, changes in the brain are becoming more prevalent among elders. A few decades ago, these changes led to a diagnosis of senility and a life confined to a “county home” for most. Today brain changes are better understood than in the past and society is learning to work with individuals who are living with a diagnosis of some type of dementia. This trend has dental professionals caring for patients they may not be prepared to serve. This presentation will walk attendees through numerous aspects of care regarding patients with dementia in the hopes of having the best appointment outcomes.
Angie Stone presented at the Iowa Dental Hygienists’ Association Student/Faculty Conference. Not only was her presentation informative and timely, she completely engaged the students. We are having her back!

During the COVID 19 Pandemic, Angie realized that her dental hygiene colleagues were confused, afraid and hurting. She took to Facebook with live videos which proved to be a great comfort for many. Those videos can be viewed on the Facebook page.
Many of the hygienists who were viewing the videos and posts on the It’s My Choice page wanted more contact with Angie, so she created a group they could join. Those who are a part of the group have found a group of likeminded friends to rely on for support, camaraderie, and friendship. The group can be joined at this link.
Dying from Dirty Teeth, by Angie Stone
Angie’s passion for elders began when her mother in law was placed in a nursing home. Since then she has been working with nursing home facilities and oral care specialists to improve the oral health of this population. Dying From Dirty Teeth is a compilation of all the things she has learned while traveling this path.
Are you involved with a dental hygiene program? Many programs are incorporating Angie’s book and have her do a guest lecture for the students. If you are interested in this, contact Angie today!
Praise for Dying from Dirty Teeth
“Hundreds of thousands of our loved ones are living with, and sometimes dying from, painful and expensive conditions that could be ameliorated or avoided by adopting the sound win-win solutions proposed in this book by Angie Stone. Dying From Dirty Teeth is concise, accessible, and on the mark.”
“Angie conveys a compelling explanation of why poor oral hygiene is a long-term care facility’s most expensive and life impacting problem. It is silent and usually unrecognized. Angie offers solutions. If this easy to read message got to every nursing home resident’s family member and every decision-maker in Medicare and Medicaid, all nursing homes in the country would have a dental hygienist on staff. End-of-life care is financially crippling our country. The impact of the simple action steps she suggests could dramatically reduce the costs of hospitalizations related to diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, pneumonia, and others.”
“People are absolutely dying too soon from dirty teeth and Angie Stone’s book uncovers this ticking time bomb. Hear her warning and heed her call because this information will impact your aged loved ones right now and all of us sooner or later!”
