Sample text

All too frequently, the dentist receives the brief comment “OK for dental care,” which suggests that clearances are often given casually and subjectively rather than being based on objective physiologic data. Principles of Diagnosis More important, the practice of having the patient “cleared” for dental care confuses the issue of responsibility for untoward events occurring during dental treatment. Although the dentist often must rely on the physician or a consultant for expert diagnostic information and for an opinion about the advisability of dental treatment or the need for special precautions, the dentist retains the primary responsibility for the procedures actually carried out and for the immediate management of any untoward complications.

A routine of initial history taking and physical examination is essential for all dental patients because even the apparently healthy patient may on evaluation be found to have history or examination findings of sufficient significance to cause the dentist to re-evaluate the plan of treatment, modify a medication, or even defer a particular treatment until additional diagnostic data are available. To respect the familiar medical axiom primum non nocere (first, do no harm), all procedures carried out on a patient and all prescriptions given to a patient should be preceded by the dentist’s conscious consideration of the risk of the particular procedure.

Because patients’ anxieties frequently emphasize the possibility of a potentially serious diagnosis, it is important to point out (when the facts allow) that the biopsy specimen revealed no evidence of a malignant growth, the blood test revealed no abnormality, and that no evidence of diseases such as diabetes, anemia, leukemia, or cancer was found. Equally important is the necessity to explain to the patient the nature, significance, and treatment of any lesion or disease that has been clearly diagnosed.
