Assoc. Prof. Dr Mohd Yusmiaidil Putera Mohd Yusof

 

Studies have shown that approximately 60% of abused children have injuries to the head, face, and mouth. As dental team members, how certain are you to treat dental injuries as accidental injury? In this lecture, Dr Yusmi will emphasize on why as dental front liners we need to be critical in our clinical judgment and the consequences of professional neglect on the abused child. Ask yourself.

 

  • Would you or your team members recognise the signs and symptoms of abuse?
  • Would you know how best to record any suspicions?
  • Would you know what action to take in a case of suspected abuse?
