In this episode of the Prism, Dr. Nareg Apelian discusses a model of dental (and medical) care that focuses on an equal sharing of power in the conversation.  This non-paternalistic approach involves the patient their own care and takes the whole of the patient's circumstances, desires, and other social factors into account when deciding the best approach to care.
