Geriodontology refers to the field of dentistry that mainly encompasses diagnosis, treatment and prevention of oral diseases and conditions in the elderly individuals. With increasing life expectancy attributed to the developments in the field of medicine, there is concomitant increase in the comorbidities and complications in the older population. In the dental perspective, increased attrition of teeth, xerostomia induced dental caries, chronic periodontal diseases and partial edentulousness are the most frequently encountered problems. The management in these instances requires additional considerations, keeping in mind the presence or absence of other systemic diseases, age and the social and environmental factors. In order to provide efficient treatment and also to encourage their constant maintenance protocols,a multimodal treatment planning has to be designed and dentists must be specifically educated and specialised in dealing with the geriatric patients. This review paper highlights the various aspects on periodontal management of geriatric patients with few futuristic suggestions in order to improve their oral healthcare in this phase of life.

High Employee turnover is one of the major challenges facing the hotel industry and it rather seems to be a worldwide phenomenon. Indian hospitality industry is facing a continued shortage of trained and skilled employees. Turnover results in losses to the organisation in terms of recruitment and training costs, lost morale, low performance, inefficient service delivery and loss of revenue. HR practices contribute to organisational performance.

By analyzing the domains of knowledge related to HR practices unique to hospitality industry with characteristics typical to the industry such as cyclical and seasonal demand, reliance on low skilled labour, international chains vs. domestic companies, ownership, heterogeneity of firm size, level of services provided, this paper attempts to present a clear cut path for researchers probing the depths of Human resource practices specific to the industry.
