Abstract Successful patient management engages many behavioural and biological variables inherent in the art and science of dental practice. Harmonious encounters require not only mutual goodwill and quality communication but also professional knowledge and dexterity. The old adage, “never treat a stranger,” simplifies clinician-patient interactions because mutual assessments are intrinsically difficult: the outcome of any appointment is unpredictable. The patient’s perception of competency does not always correlate with the level of care that is either offered or delivered. Like comedy, trust is fragile and has a brief shelf life. This paper provides thoughts on a sometimes ignored but essential aspect of progressive dental practice, the medical history.
