This patient presented to the Dugoni clinic in 2018 in need of a full mouth rehabilitation. It was immediately apparent that her history of traumatic dental care coupled with her generalized anxiety disorder would make a complex dental treatment plan even more challenging to manage. As a dental clinician, it is important to have a full understanding of our patient’s medical, psychological, and social history in order to come up with a successful treatment plan.

Our 10-minute video aims to introduce dental students and any first-time users to dental loupes, elaborating on important aspects in a simplified, yet scientific and evidence-based way.
