Katy is a 14-year-old high school student who is brought to the clinic by her mother. The mother was upset to learn that Katy had her lower lip pierced over the weekend, and wants to discuss this today during her check-up.
What key message should the primary care clinician communicate to Katy and her mother about oral piercing?
Six months later, Katy returns to the clinic presenting with chipped enamel of her upper central left incisor due to her lip jewelry. You inspect her oral piercing site and jewelry, a metal ball screwed into a barbell shank, to be intact and with no signs of infection. To address Katy’s chipped tooth, you make a referral to a dentist, but Katy claims the last dentist “did not think the piercing was a big deal”.
How should a primary care clinician collaborate with the dentist to meet Katy’s oral health care needs?
As a primary care clinician working in this clinic you have seen an increase number of young patients with oral piercings, and note that most adolescents are unaware of the potential complications. There is a lack of knowledge and differing perspectives among your colleagues about oral piercings. You take the lead and convene an interprofessional team to develop clinical practice guidelines related to oral piercings.
What should members of the interprofessional team do to support collaborative practice and team effectiveness?
