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.
Dr. Nareg Apelian earned his DMD in 1996 from Université de Montréal. He then worked as an associate at multiple places and eventually bought his own office in 2001 in one of Montreal’s poorest sectors. He just recently became Assistant Professor and Director of Continuing Dental Education at McGill University.
