Considerations for Patients with Depression in Complex Dental Treatment
5 months ago
In this video, we discuss the importance of carefully assessing patients with depression before embarking on complex dental treatment. We offer advice on how to identify warning signs of uncontrolled depression and the importance of ensuring patients have been stable on their medication for a period of time before proceeding with any complex dental work. Our aim is to provide guidance to dental professionals on how to approach this sensitive issue with compassion and empathy, in order to ensure the best possible outcome for both the patient and the dentist.
