Patient experience

Ian Mills will deliver a lecture on the day titled: ‘Person centred care – rhetoric or requirement.’

Person-centred care is a commonly used term within dentistry. But do we really understand what it means or whether it is of any relevance?

This presentation will consider how we interact with our patients, explore key aspects of the patient experience and reflect on why this is an increasingly important feature of delivering high quality dentistry
