Abstract: Part 2 of this series of two articles addresses the Hall Technique for preformed metal crowns. It will discuss the need for an effective child and dentist friendly method to restore carious primary molars. The technique is described in detail and the evidence for its effectiveness and acceptance by children, parents, dentists and dental educators is presented.

Clinical relevance: Dentists and dental care professionals should be aware of the evidence to support the adoption of the Hall Technique.
