Clinical Scenarios


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.

Scenario A

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)?
