- Pt had a good understanding of the tx that was completed and was excited to participate. However, pt’s circumstances made it difficult to maintain compliance.
- Complications during treatment:
* Pt did not have cell phone or number for direct contact
* Pt was dependant on friends driving him to and from appt
* No Show on 2 appts.
- We did our best to reschedule broken appts
- Provided pt with Sonicare TB as well as ACT daily fluoride rinse, and other OH aids so pt would not have to buy on their own.
- It was difficult to attain the ideal resolution because pt was not compliant with smoking cessation & medical consults/check-ups.
