Abstract

The presentation of alternative treatment plans and the discussion of these options with the adolescent patient is a routine part of both general dental and specialist orthodontic practice. This article will cover the issues involved in obtaining consent for treatment from the adolescent patient and suggests a practical means, if appropriate, to ensure that these patients can give and withdraw consent for their own treatment.
