Abstract

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic the UK dental workforce is facing a national health crisis as we address the vast amount of untreated dental disease. This is ever more pressing for our child dental patients for whom early detection and intervention is key to maintaining quality of life. A pragmatic, cost-effective, dental team-based approach, grounded in the philosophy of Minimal Intervention Dentistry (MID) is needed to address the increasing burden of disease and the worsening of health inequalities. Although not exhaustive, this article offers a brief overview of evidence relating to minimally invasive techniques for the management of dental caries in paediatric dentistry.
