3. Maxillofacial Considerations

You must first complete 2. History, Assessment & Diagnosis before viewing this Lesson

It is the role of the clinician to identify issues which require maxillofacial input if the patient presents to the dental surgery first. Generally, because of the health care system structure in the UK, most patients with significant trauma will present to A&E rather than the dental surgery, but the clinician should remain vigilant. The two general considerations to be aware of are facial lacerations and fractures.
