Generalism Is The New Speciality: Treatment Planning In A Litigious World

When a new patient contacts the practice for a consultation, our professional obligations to them are covered by the nine principles of the GDC standards. As dentistry becomes more advanced and complex, competition intensifies and patient demands increase and expectation of payable fees decrease, our profession is being stretched between a rising clinical and ethical bar with a demand for better treatments, documentation, communication and a clear consent process, but not always taking into account the increasing amount of personal time and expense that providing such diligence costs.

Drawing on past cases and 30 years of experience in clinical practice, this lecture attempts to systematically analyse the process of clinical information gathering, treatment planning, communication and the consent process for a new patient in general practice. It will attempt to answer how it is possible to collect, analyse and evaluate information, to thoroughly plan and effectively communicate multiple options to our patients to obtain adequate consent on a routine basis. It will address whether the profession needs to reconsider the consultation process in much more detail and raise the bar for ourselves to reduce the risk of underdiagnosis, inappropriate treatment and long-term detrimental effects on our patients by sound clinical observation as soon as we become responsible for a patient's dental and medical well-being.

This is a lecture covering things that are routinely missed at consultation and examination that then can lead to problems later on and how taking time to systematically approach and diagnose the detail that cannot only improve patient treatment outcomes but also the long-term success and well-being of the general practitioner.

This lecture is about the ground work that has to be done first before all the beautiful stuff can be carried out.
