RISK MANAGEMENT AND CHALLENGES IN DENTISTRY
As dental practitioners, we encounter many challenges on a daily basis. Understanding the various areas of vulnerability and providing guidance for mitigating weaknesses is the goal of this presentation. Patient and staff safety is the primary objective of any dental practice. Unfortunately, complications and unexpected outcomes can sometimes occur leading to patient dissatisfaction and sometimes legal liability issues. In this presentation, we cover many areas of vulnerabilities in the dental practice and discuss alternatives and resolutions to those issues and hope that it stimulates thoughts and triggers discussion amongst the dental team members.
We hope that by careful attention to this important subject, our colleagues avoid dental and medical litigations. Our goal is that our listeners return to their practices, identify, evaluate, track, and improve the risk mitigation process discussed in this presentation. This course is designed to encompass all specialties of dentistry and all team members. A dental practice that can predict a risk will always be at an advantage. POTENTIAL DISCOUNT ON YOUR LIABILITY INSURANCE
Radiation in dentistry is an invaluable tool which can be very beneficial to providing the correct diagnosis and treatment. However, radiation can pose serious risks to both the patient and the staff if not used properly. The course will review the essentials in radiation safety, biological effects of radiation, quality assurance, quality control and case presentations. NOTE: This course will cover all of the requirements mandated by the Department of State and the Department of Environmental Protection's Bureau of Radiation Protection regarding the critical importance of safe and effective use of radiation in dentistry.
