Risk Management in Dentistry: A Practical Approach

11/15/17: This course has limited space available.

Dentists cannot prevent the possibility of a lawsuit by a patient, however they can greatly minimize the possibility of a successful lawsuit. Therefore, it is critical that dentists institute basic risk management steps into their practices. Some of these steps relate to how you handle your patients' emotional expectations, but most concern management of record keeping and information systems in your practice.

There will also be a discussion of standards of care in dentistry, since risk management strategies are dependent on and interwoven with a thorough knowledge of standards of care (SOC). There will be practical examples of  both risk management and standards of care.
