Oral Care & Huntington's:
Keeping the mouth healthy

Initiated by the Huntington’s Disease Association of Cyprus, dental hygienist and newly elected chairperson of the Swedish Huntington Association, Annette Carlsson, held a webinar on oral care and Huntington’s disease. More than sixty people attended the webinar to learn more about oral care in people with Huntington’s disease. 

Among the participants were family members, people working with the disease and people who did not know anything about Huntington’s but wanted to learn more about it. The attendees asked a lot of interesting and important questions and Annette gave thorough answers.

The webinar was really engaging and informative. After the event, one of the attendees wrote this on the European Huntington Association’s facebook page: 

– It was, indeed, a fantastic webinar. 

– When care staff are concerned about residents’ anger, apathy, irritation, non-compliance and even aggression, it’s always important to look into their mouths. Again, such an important topic…well done to all!!!
