Consent for Complex Dentistry

The Office of the Public Advocate sometimes hears stories of people with a disability receiving complex dental care that has gone wrong.

To assist people who are asked to consent to such treatment, a new information sheet has been prepared with the assistance of a special needs dentist.  This information is relevant to both young and older adults.   A key recommendation is that patients and decision makers ask questions of professionals and to take time to make a decision.
