 Dr Dorothy Boyd 

 Dr Dorothy Boyd has been researching children’s procedural pain experiences in a study that compared the Hall technique and conventional technique for placing stainless steel crowns on primary molars. She found that measuring pain is a challenge, and that pain and distress become mingled - pain usually causes distress, but distress is not always accompanied by pain.
