Abstract
Objective: The objective of this case study was to investigate the efficacy of Minimum Intervention Dentistry (MID) to manage caries in a child with dental anxiety. Materials & Methods: The research was conducted using PubMed and Google scholar databases. It focused on reviewing the relevant articles dated from 2004 to 2016. A nine year old girl was selected as a subject. She has a past history of dental anxiety. Her dental anxiety was assessed using the Modified Child Dental Anxiety Scale (MCDAS). It showed that the child may have dental anxiety associated with incompliance. In addition, a caries risk assessment was performed using CAMBRA. The result revealed that the patient has a high risk of caries. This was managed by implementing the MID approach which focused to provide a positive experience for this child. Results: The results indicated that the implementation of MID approach tried to build up a trustworthy and positive relationship between the clinician and child. It may have contributed to increase patient’s tolerance for accepting dental treatment. Overall, the MID approach tried to provide a positive dental experience to the child. Conclusion: It has been concluded that MID is an effective approach which may contribute to manage caries in a child with dental anxiety. This approach can play an important role to acclimatize the patient to dental environment. Overall, it may enhance oral health, general health and quality of life of patients.
Biography

Apurv Mehrotra continues to be a wonderful ambassador of the success of the International Research Collaborative - Oral Health and Equity programs. After realising that dentistry incorporates art and science into one degree, he knew it would be a perfect fit for him. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Dental Surgery from India. In a third world country, his clinical experience commenced, where his passion for oral health promotion in the wider communities grew. To broaden his skills in community dentistry, he planned to pursue Master’s degree in Dental Public Health from the University of Western Australia. Furthermore, his enthusiasm towards community encouraged him to complete a degree in Social Work. This blend of professional achievement provided him with a unique level of experience in the community health field. To improve the unmet dental needs of the community, he qualified as an Oral Health Therapist with Adult Dentistry Scope of practice from Latrobe University. This course helped him to widen his clinical skills in modern aspects of dentistry. Ultimately, it has enabled him to perform dual roles in this profession by working as an overseas Dentist in India and Oral Health Therapist in Australia.
