The current seminar, The High Cost of Shortcuts, is available through live seminars and as an eLearning option.
Shortcuts have their place, but not in dentistry. Incomplete documentation, the omission of necessary procedures and failure to fully inform patients are why even the best dentist will likely experience a lawsuit in the course of a career. This seminar uses real case studies to illustrate why effective patient communication and continuity of care are imperative in delivering excellent dentistry.
After completion, you will understand how to:
- Create a proactive approach when multiple dentists treat one patient
- Establish office procedures when patients complain of pain
- Develop strategies to educate patients on treatment recommendations
- Deploy effective protocols for medical emergencies
By completing this seminar, you can earn:
- Policy discount*— two-year, 5% Professional Liability premium discount
- C.E. and Completion Hours—3.0 C.E., and 3.0 AGD and 3.0 ADA CERP hours
