These steps are based on the best evidence in literature on how to proceed in accomplishing a task or performing a treatment or a diagnosis. It’s basically a roadmap for the dentist to follow. Dr. Marwan Abou-Rass is with us today to discuss how large dental practices can increase the quality and productivity of patient care services through the introduction and use of clinical protocols.
