Abstract

With more education in all parts of dentistry available to general dentists, more and more we are called upon to use multidisciplinary
techniques to solve a patient’s problem or to meet their goal. In the past, we always approached this from an
evidence based dentistry point of view. However, in recent years, we have learned of a number of limitation of the EBD model
when treatment planning things for the individual patient with an individual set of circumstances. In particular, the lack of
focus in dentistry on soft skills, personal interaction and communication ability, means that an evidence based approach can
lead to very significant failure technically and even worse failure in the patient’s eyes. In this presentation, the author will talk
about some techniques that help to use the available evidence more appropriately by understanding its limitations. The author
will also show three difficulties, four fears, and five tools to improve understanding of the patient and their goals.
