“What is Person-Centered Care?”

The word “patient-centered” is the latest buzzword in research and education, yet in dentistry the concept is not very well understood. Through a presentation of the historical context and core notions in other health professions and dentistry, this presentation will set the stage for better understanding of what does it mean to be patient-centered.


Attendees will learn:

  1. The historical context of patient-centered care. 

  2. Some of the models of patient-centered care in medicine. 

  3. To understand the proposed model of patient-centered care in clinical dentistry.
