Case Presentation Here, Phyllis begins a consultation by providing a case presentation to Dr. Jeff Karp, DDS, at Eastman Dental, with the University of Rochester Medical Center. Information shared included medical history, diagnosis at prior screening/exam, and any social or economic barriers affecting the family’s ability to complete treatment.
Case Presentation While Phyllis presents her information to Dr. Karp, we see him on the Tandberg unit, listening to the case.
Here is an example of a tooth with severe decay. Thanks to the precision of the camera’s focus and image capture, Dr. Karp is able to use these images to determine the level of treatment a child needs, including sedation methods, (which will also determine treatment locations, i.e. OR vs. dentist’s office) preoperative medications, and behavioral considerations.
Other Highlights Goofing around with Dr. Jeff before the examination!
