This presentation goes into detail the fascinating personal and professional history of Dr. Anne Koch. She will also address all the required aspects of care for the transgender patient, beginning with a description of terms, as well as how to create the proper office environment. This will lead to a discussion of the medical challenges these patients face and how they may affect their dental treatment. There will also be a comprehensive discussion of the various options that transgender patients have concerning “transition.” This will include surgical options.
