Eisenhower Box for Prioritising Waiting List of Orthodontic Patients
The demand for orthodontic treatment is increasing greatly in the present days. In a country like India which has a humongous population of 1210 million the management strategies need to be formulated so as to give justice to the deprived. The prioritization should be based on the extent to which the malocclusion handicaps the patient and his motivation to commence the treatment. Eishenhower box, the famous productivity strategy, which was proposed by 34th U.S. president Dwight David Eishenhower is being presented in this article as a tool to deal with the orthodontic OPD. This Eishenhower matrix will act as a decision making tool for prioritizing the orthodontic OPD which will be immensely helpful to busy clinicians specially in government set up, in deciding which case needs to be treated first.
