This chapter outlines a range of clinical scenarios to enable you to work through the evidence-based process.
By outlining how you would respond to these scenarios, you will be able to see how your responses compare with the evidence presented in the subsequent chapters.
A mother with two older children who have had experience of dental decay resulting in fillings and extraction wants to know how the same can be prevented in her newborn (Fig 3-1)?
It is Friday afternoon. An adult patient who is an irregular attender presents with history of a dull throbbing pain in a filled tooth that is tender to percussion. The patient is keen to retain the tooth and is going away for the weekend (Fig 3-2).
