Patient centred care refers to the active involvement of patients in decision-making about
their treatment. Patients should be given the necessary information and opportunity to exercise
the degree of control they choose over health care decisions that affect them . At Evidental, we are strong
advocates of this care model, and strive to accomodate differences in patient preferences and encourage
shared decision making.
The B.C. Ministry of Health defines patient centred care as care that puts "patients
at the forefront of their health and care, ensures they retain control over their own choices,
helps them make informed decisions and supports a partnership between individuals, families,
and health care services providers." 
To help keep you informed, we put a strong focus on education
. To help understand
your preferences, we use techniques such as decision tree analysis. We are committted to
evidence based dentistry
to bring you the most timely and accurate information about current dental practice.
